My special dropsy cure c;

This worked on my betta Nolet. Hope this works for you.
SUPPLIES NEEDED
1.Extra tank (About 1 gallon).
2.Epsom salt.
3.clean new water.
4.Table spoon.
5.Betta with dropsy.
First, fill your tank up with new water. Next get 1 1/2 table spoons of epsom salt and let it dissolve.Next put your betta in the tank let him/her sit there for 1 day.
Next day clean your tank and get rid of all the epsom salt. Fill it up with new water and let your betta recover.

Quick update... Soldier looks soooooo much better. I'm so relieved. His scales are completely flat and sleek and nice again, he's not bloated anymore, and as far as I can tell, his fungus didn't come back after the bit of his tail fell off and I scrubbed the tank really well.

Tomorrow is his last day on antibiotics, but the instructions say that a second course may be administered as needed. What do you all think? He's looking better, but I don't want to take any chances.

I would continue treatment for another course. If he even has a small amount of bacterial infection that caused the dropsy it will come back even stronger and probably be immune to the antibiotic.

Quick update. Soldier is much better, we're on his third day of the second course of antibiotics, no more white fuzz, no more bloating, and I spied a normal poop in the bottom of the tank this morning.

Soldier is feeling so much better in fact, that we almost had a new emergency. I couldn't get his pellet off of my finger when I was feeding him, and he almost jumped right out of the tank trying to get to it. I'd say we're out of the woods now. Thanks all for the advice, hopefully I won't need it again for a while.
