I usually do a water change before adding in meds just to be on the safe side. For extra course, I mean the 1-3 doses every other day for another 3 doses. With dropsy symptoms, if you are not absolutely sure you've treated thoroughly, the bacteria can strike again and be more resistant and hard to treat. When dosed this way, Kanaplex is safe for another course.

If he seems to be doing okay without the epsom salt, you can always skip it but it won't hurt him to have it in there. You can start him out on 1 tsp a gallon and if he seems okay on that, leave him at that level. Otherwise, work him back up to 3 tsps/gallon again.

I just checked on him again and I am very happy to say that the pine-coning is completely gone! :D I took a couple of pics to post on here but for some reason my computer isn't recognizing my SD card. I can try again later though.

If I can get them to post and his pine-coning is indeed fully gone, should I do the next dose of Kanaplex? And should I continue with the epsom salt?

I would definitely continue with the epsom salt for at least a week. Ideally, one more course of Kanaplex can only help him but that's entirely up to you. If you feel he's completely better, than by all means we don't need to throw more meds at him.

I'm very happy that he's doing so much better. :)
