* Any new fish added to the tank? No

* Any medications added to the tank? No

* List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. She has always had floaty tendencies. She has taken mms successfully twice in the past per recommendation of mods here but all that was at least a year ago or longer. She has had prazi rounds every six months since I've had her. Other than that just a floaty fish.

* Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Currently a small red dot on her underside and some rubbing marks on her dorsal fin because of resting on it at the bottom of the tank

* Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? She stays at the bottom, is swimming upside down when she chooses to move, lays upside down, is not eating, and is presenting with pineconing as of yesterday.

Flopsy is swimming upside down nearly all the time as of about 10 days ago. As she does this frequently I didn't think much of it just fed some peas one with a grain of Epsom salt and thought it would pass. When it didn't I moved her into a sterilite tub and began watching her for two more days. She showed a little spot of raised scales where she'd been resting so I decided to go ahead with metro meds to see if it would help. Today is day 8 and she has just started to pine cone all over as of yesterday afternoon. I have metromeds and medi gold on hand as well as salt and Epsom salt. Please help me. I love this fish. She's already been through so much as you have seen in the past. I just want her to be happy. Video and pictures soon. Thank you all so much.

Hello! I'm sorry Flopsy isn't doing well. :(

Keep the Epsom, and start feeding 1% of her weight daily (3-6 meals with that amount total for the day).

Good luck!

Yes, Epsom + MMs. It doesn't look too bad, so hopefully she will respond quickly and return to normal. :)

Upddate: She's at 14 days on MMs and still is pineconed and upside down. The good news is she has been eating. Never been so psyched to see poo before. Should I continue feeding them? Switch to medi gold? She just doesn't appear to be getting better or worse. =/ Pictures and video as always very soon.

No, no, let's continue...sometimes these things take much longer to resolve. I'm glad she seems to be responding better. :)

Let's just continue. She is well within the "allotted" treatment time.

Good luck, Kayla and Flopsy!

Kayla do you know how much she weighs? Are you sure she's getting enough of the MMs? :idont

I can't remember how much she weighed but last time she was on the meds she was being fed 64 pellets a day. I've just been feeding her that as I don't believe she's grown much and I no longer have a scale.
