i thought my female guppy was pregnant and laying on the bottom of the tank because she was about to give birth. 4 days later she’s still laying on the bottom and has her scales sticking up. i still can’t tell if she’s pregnant or if it’s dropsy, she has had babies before.

Some people use clove oil mixed with a little bit of alcohol. For small fish, you can wrap them in a paper towel and hit them on the head with something solid. This can be messy tho.
