The clove. I wouldn't put a whole clove in either, just a few little slices or something. Or dice it into little pieces so its stronger.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

Look at him really closely...do his scales stick up any, instead of laying down flat?

This is the song that never ends...

Because it could be dropsy, personally I don't think it looks like dropsy, he looks like he needs to poop. So are the scales on his head or anywhere else but the bulge sticking up? Either way you should does epsoms salts, If he needs to poo it will help with that and if he has dropsy it will cure that. Not cure, but help him expel the fluids. you need to add 1/4 teaspoon epsoms salt per gallon of water.

Where is the white stuff coming out of? The fish?

There are only scales where the big bubble is at and i think the white stuff is coming from where he goes poop.

Could you tell us your water parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and temperature? Treatment can be very dangerous without knowing these, as interactions between these things can be fatal. If you don't know them, your local fish store will probably test your water for free, but nothing can replace owning your own liquid test kit.

These things are generally impossible to accurately diagnose from a photo. However, I just talked about that, and recommended treatment for a similar ailment in another thread:

Remember, don't treat your fish until you know your water parameters! If you need further help finding medications available in your area, please ask, and we'll help you.
