My female betta has dropsy and I'm not sure why :(
I done a test on her water using an API test kit, no problems there (amonia 0 nitrate 0 nitrite 0)
She's eating hikari betta pellets and bloodworm and some tropical flakes now and again although the flakes are more for the neon tetras who live with her in her tank, not her.
She doesn't live with many other fish, just 4 neon tetras, one last remaining harlequin and 2 female rams (don't pay her much attention) in a 70LTR tank, it's quite a lightly stocked tank.
She has vision of a male betta in the tank next to hers so I wonder maybe if she could be egg binding?
She does have a heater and filter which are on all the time and the heater has a thermostat built in.
Any other ideas why she could have gotten it? and how do I go about treating her?
She doesnt seem to be acting sick, she still eats and swims around, but her scales are puffing out like a pinecone so there's clearly something wrong.
None of the other fish seem affected.
I'm a little worried, I've read that not many fish recover from Dropsy and I certainly don't want to lose her :(
