Are there any other diseases that would cause 'pineconing' other than dropsy?

I've been reading up on dropsy, and one of the symptoms is lack of appetite, but Goober's still eating like he always does (which is going mad for his food). He has been lethargic a bit, and hiding in his dino skull, but he still does swim around lots. So far his symptoms have been pineconing, a bit of lethargy, hiding, and fuzzy white stuff on parts of his body.

What would be a good treatment? I've been reading that aquarium salt isn't any good for dropsy, but that epsom salt is.

if it is kidney failure it will most likely be fatal by the time pineconing starts. thats at least what I know

Sorry to hear about your fish :( From what I've heard, once the fish pinecones there isn't anything to be done...
