If it actually is dropsy, then it is fatal. I've never heard of a fish recovering from dropsy. Epsom salt may help relieve some of his discomfort, though.

Try reposting this in the disease section, filling in this form: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=49233 It will provide information for the people to be able to analyse and help you. :) I would also suggest a picture if you can.

Really the best thing to do if you are capable of doing it is euthanasia. I had to do it just two days ago. It was easier than I thought but still painful.

How do you know that it is indeed dropsy?
