I recently lost two fish to what I think is dropsy. They swelled up and
their scales stuck out. In the same tank there is a male Fp walkeri which
appears to be perfectly healthy. My questions are: Is this really dropsy
and if not what else could it be? How contagious is this disease? What do
I need to do to keep if from spreading to other tanks? Now that I've
removed the dead fish what do I need to do to the tank before I put other
fish in it? And finally if it is dropsy what causes it and is their a
treatment that works?
Tank parameters are temps in the high 70's, hard water, regular water
changes at least monthly, some plants, basically a well established tank.
The only thing I had done differently than normal was to feed this tank
moina (sp?) and mosquito larvae that I raised outside. However I also fed
the same food on the same day to several other tanks with no problems.
Thanks for the help.
