dropsy is due to feeding of dry food,
if not too late with a syringe in his mouth give droplets of olive oil twice a day till you see an improvement,

Dropsy is a SYMPTOM due to a number of causes. Dropsy has nothing to do with the type of food they are eating. Dropsy happens and we don't know the exact cause(s), just the symptom (dropsy) and we try to fix the symptom.

Bloating and constipation happens when we over feed unhealthy foods. Unhealthy pellets, flakes, etc will cause bloating/constipation. Dry/freeze dry foods don't cause it on their own. They don't need to be soaked. Food causes it when it's low quality, or food not meant for the fish and is over fed.

Unsure where that idea came from food = dropsy o.O

Lat night my betta clan went from three to four. I
My king, Sparky (beautiful iridescent green color!) now claims 90% of a divided tank that he shares with Toby. My 1.5 gallon now belongs to a little Cambodian CT girl who stole my heart at Petco yesterday. Her name is Star and I promised myself no more! But we all know how that turns out (;
