Tiger is Pineconing - 1 week after Sudden Death

You can change up your medication route to feeding it in a gel instead of waterborne as a last ditch effort, let him live out his days without treatment, or you can euthanize him. It's really your choice based on how he is acting/feeling. Dropsy is difficult to treat even in a young and healthy fish :(

Thank you everyone...he was still struggling when I got home...this was about the hardest euthanasia I've ever had to do.


It sure is going to be hard not seeing him in the tank after all these years

Really sorry you had to put Tiger down. Sending you LONG distance hugs. He will remain forever in your heart...I had a special fish like him years ago (Big Boy) & tho' it's been YEARS I still think of him now & then! I am sure Tiger will reside in your heart forever as well!!
