    @MariaS thank you! I think I'll do that instead, as I can't yet afford more medications like the kanaplex at this moment

    I'm very sorry for your loss!

    The Betta Whatsapp group I'm in, this seems to be a very common occurrence.

    I did notice even you just Google dropsy, bettas come up the most. I suppose it's makes sense, that species that are bred for their specific traits tend to be more prone to certain diseases or illnesses, much the same as pure bred dogs etc
