I don't think it is, but I don't want to take any chances. This is a
gardneri killie in a tank with a bunch of rainbows. I've been having some
illness problems lately with all inhabitants, and I've been losing killifish
to this disease.

They get bloated and turn almost white. They stop eating. Their scales
protrude. These are the only symptoms. No whitish feces, no sores. Not even
hanging at the surface. They are anywhere. This one was easy to catch and
place in a hospital tank. I am treating him for bacteria, because to me it
seems like Dropsy. (which I've never actually seen before -- just read about
it.)

Please look at the attached phots. Before and after pics.

What do you guys think?
Thanks!!!
