Recommended Posts

Guest tooterfish

if a true pearlscale has the appearance of a dropsy fish

how do you know you are purchasing a pearlscale.. and not a fish with dropsy?

Ok think of a pinecone, that is how the scales on a dropsied fish will look. They scales will be lifting, just like a pine cone.

A pearlscales scales are not lifted exactly. They are sort of beaded LOL. Not a very good description. It would help if you had seen dropsy and a pearlscale.

There are some very good pictures of Drospy on the Puregold site.

I had a pearscale with dropsy once... I couldn't tell if her scales were pineconing or not, but I could see her body swelling. She swelled up so much, she began to develop a lobe at the base of her head on top. Many board members said she might be a crown pearscale, but the lobe wasn't on her head.
