A little over a week ago one of my comets started displaying signs of bloating and had sores on her right side behind the gills. She isn't showing any signs of lethargy and she is eating. Immediately I quarantined the fish and observed her for a day because I wasn't sure what to treat her for. Her scales have been pine coning so right now we are treating her for Dropsy as she is exhibiting the common symptoms. I am treating her with salt and API Malafix every day with frequent water changes and adding api stress coat every water change. None of my other fish in the pond display any signs as I have been vigilant to make sure no one else is showing any signs.\n\nIn the beginning, it looked as if she was injured during spawning because the weather here is prime spawning conditions so that is what I had suspected because of her sore and looked like she had some swelling, which first prompted me to get her quarentined.
