i dunno for sure. But what else makes the scales pop out? I gave him some daphnia last night. I cant really tell if any swelling went down or not. He still looks swollen.

I mean Elvis. He isnt doing too good either.

LOL sorry. Morado. I looked up dropsy and well he doesnt look like that. So maybe just bad constipation. From what I read they all should have more to their diet. Like frozen food. I may look into that.

I feed mine bloodworms, brine shrimp and daphnia. I use freeze dried. I think frozen is better for them, actually.
