Dropsy is an edema of the fish and it is only a manifestation of a certain clinical condition.  Kidney, heart or liver problems, bacterial infection and poor water conditions are some of the predisposing factors.  Though, it is not a contagious disease, it is important to have an isolation tank if your fish is in group. 

Proper water conditioning is important at this point of time.  To eliminate bacterial problems which is in doubt, there are water anti bacterial treatment that may be used.  We suggest to check water parameters, including the temperature as well as it may aggravate dropsy conditions if not in optimal levels.

For other related information, please visit and talk to our Pet Care Consutant in all our PLC outlets.

Warm regards,
