pinecone disease is another term for dropsy which is still a bacterial infection. If you ever see this again, seperate the fish and treat with an antibiotic. Adding Epsom salt to the water too will serve as a laxative in a way and help the fish dispell any built up fluid. Dropsy can cause the whole body to bloat or it can be organ specific and cause a bulge on the body. Fortunately its not very contagious but still keep an eye on your other fish and make sure the water quality is good.
