I had to put an Odessa barb down tonight
He came down with Dropsy; and given my past failures treating this symptom, I decided to not keep him alive more than necessary. He was not eating and was lethargic and to himself. Straight Clove oil turned him belly up within 3 minutes and he stopped breathing within 10. I gave him another 10 minutes to make sure there was no gill movement and pronounced him dead at 9:45 p.m.
