    Hey guys. One of my Bettas started showing signs of Dropsy least week. On Saturday I started Epsom salt baths to try and help the swelling go down and then I plan to treat with Kanaplex. How long is the max time that I should do Epsom salt baths? Right now I do them every other day along with daily water changes of 50-90%. Is there anything else I can do for him?

    The max I would do in a day is 3 baths with 3 hrs in between each bath. Besides that method of treatment of epsom salt baths and Kanaplex, there isn't much more you can do unfortunately.
