There is no 'cure' for dropsy, but adding epsom's salt will help your fish expel some fluids. I had a platy with dropsy months ago and used the epsoms salt, I can't even tell what one had dropsy anymore
and none have died so I can only assume hes going strong.
I'm trying to remember how much I used. I think I used 1/4 teaspoon per gallon. But I'm looking it up now.
Everyone uses a different amount of salt, lol I would just go with 1/4 teaspoon per gallon, it worked for me. I read that following up with maracyn 1 and 2 helps. I didn't use it and my fish it fin... But I would just add the epsoms salt and decide if its constipation or dropsy before you add meds.
