Okay, so I had small period where I fell behind in water changes on a tank. The guppy I had in the tank started to become bloated, uninterested in food, and was always hiding. Based off the symptoms I believe he had dropsy. I have since removed him from the tank and put him in a quarantine tank. I have been doing salt baths the past two days, and the guppy seems to be more active now and is beginning to eat; however, he still has the bloated belly and pinecone scales. My question do you think he'll make it or should I put him down. I heard that once pineconing occurs there is usually no way to cure dropsy. Any knowledge on the dropsy subject would be greatly appreciated.
