 It  is  a  "big"fantail...otherwise  extremely  healthy.  But  since  last  few  days  it  seemed  fatter  than  usual.  Everything  fine  apart  from  this  suspicion  and  likkelihood  of  untreatable  dropsy.

 Sorry,  but  looks  like  Dropsy   Crying or Very sad  ,  but  still  has  not  worsened  yet..  you  can  treat  by  separating  it  to  another  tank  and  adding  1tsp  of  rock  salt  per  gallon,  feed  good  vege  based  foods  but  maintain  good  water  quality  and  areation..  and  hope  for  the  best..  It  will  be  great  if  some  one  suggest  a  broad  spectrum  antibiotics...

 Sad  
 Well  one  of  the  reasons  ould  that  when  we  went  out  of  station  for  4  days,  my  neighbour  was  good  enough  to  feed  the  fish.  Sadly,  he  erred  on  the  higgher  side.  When  I  came  back,  I  cleaned  the  filter  (The  water  was  still  clear  though)  and  changed  water.  However,  in  a  few  days,  it  had  an  attack  of  fin  rot....but  it  has  healed.  Now  in  just  another  week,  it  has  got  dropy.  May  be  the  immunity  has  gone  down.  The  fish  has  been  a  darling  at  our  home.  It  has  been  with  us  for  more  than  2  years  and  has  grown  from  a  2  in  Rs  xx  baby  to  a  10"+  "Mammoth"who  bullies  the  arowana  too.  Feels  sad.  However,  I  have  taken  following  steps:
 
 1)  Will  not  feed  it  today
 2)  Added  "Battle  bacteria"as  it  claims  to  be  a  de  stresser  
 3)  Added  salt.
 
 Hardly  anything  more  I  can  do  without  some  expert  advice.  would  adding  tetramicin/  metrogyl  dose  help?  Yes,  I  am  panicked.  Help,  please.

 Well  you  could  try  this
 Remove  the  sick  goldfish  from  the  tank  and  isolate  it  in  a  quarantine  tank.  Add  Epsom  salt  in  ratio  of  about  1  teaspoons  per  15  litre  of  water
 1  capsule  of  teramycin/tetramycin.  and  dont  feed  for  a  few  days.  
   You  are  doing  it  right  as  of  now

 Thankd  Nidhi  &  Ramdas.
 This  is  the  status...hospital  tank  is  just  enough  for  the  fish  to  stay  still.  I  have  done  following  this  evening:
 
 1)  Using  old  tank  water  to  fill  up  new  tank  to  avoid  sudden  shock.
 2)  Gave  the  fish  1  min  bath  in  potassium  permanganate  solution  (1  mg  approx  in  10  lit).
 3)  SHifted  the  bathed  goldie  to  the  hospital  tank
 4)  Added  3/4th  tablespoon  of  epsom  salt
 5)  10  drops  of  ridall  anti  ich  (Dont  know  if  it  was  required)
 6)  half  capsule  powder  of  tetramycin  250  mg.
 
 LFS  guy  had  some  encouraaging  words  to  offer  when  he  told  me  that  he  had  once  rescued  an  arowana   Surprised   from  Dropsy.
 I  hope  this  helps,  though  I  am  prepared  for  the  worst  Sad.

 The  result  this  morning  was  that  there  was  considerable  poop...some  of  it  was  floating  with  airbubbles  stuck.  Perhaps  and  I  may  be  imagining,  the  swelling  at  the  basy  of  the  tail  is  considerably  lower.  
 
 With  the  poop,  I  surely  infer  that  the  organs  like  kidney  (Or  its  equivalent  in  fish)  is  surely  still  working.  
 
 Did  a  50%  water  change  again  in  the  morning  and  0.5  teaspoon  epsom  salt  along  with  half  a  capsule  power  of  tetramycin  250  mg.  Would  add  i/4th  tab  of  flagly  at  night,  unless  some  one  advices  in  the  negative.
 
 The  goldie  surely  is  still  beggging  for  food.
