 Oops,
    I  never  thought  about  that.  I  feed  my  fishes  twice  a  day  but  I  don't  think  I  over  feed  them.
    Can  someone  tell  me  what  are  the  symptoms  of  dropsy.
 Atleast  I'm  sure  that  my  Molly  is  pregnant  for  sure.  It  has  delivered  twice  this  will  be  3rd  time.

 Chk  out  if  there  is  any  sign  of  stress  in  those  fishes.  If  they  are  moving  alone  and  getting  disballanced  and  loosing  appetite.  If  they  hit  by  dropsy  they  will  loose  their  balance  slowly.  Do  take  a  close  eye  on  them  and  their  behaviour.
 
 If  they  are  affected,  remove  them  from  your  main  tank  immidiately.  Not  sure  abt  the  medicine  to  cure  dropsy.  I  lost  my  3  mollies  for  the  same  reason,  2  weeks  back.

 Wow  .  Pregnant  fish  to  dropsy  in  2  posts.
 
 @  Karna
 
 How  long  do  you  feel  that  your  fish  are  pregnant  for?
 
 All  what  Tirtha   said,  and  adding  if  you  view  a  fish  with  dropsy  from  top,  the  scales  will  be  sticking  out  or  raised.   
 
 If  its  dropsy,  separate  the  fish,   add  a  little   epsom  salt,  raise  the  temperature  a  few  degrees,  add  aeration  and  wait.
 
 If  its  pregnancy,  separate  the  fish,  DO  NOT  add  a  little   epsom  salt,  DO  NOT  raise  the  temperature  a  few  degrees,  add  aeration  and  wait.
    Very Happy   Very Happy

 In  my  experience,  I  have  seen  Mollies  generally  drop  their  fries  at  the  time  of  full  moon  !

 None  of  these  fishes  are  lethargic  or  have  lost  appetite  actually  they  have  a  very  good  appetite.  
 
 I'm  still  not  sure  whether  they  are  infected  with  Dropsy  they  are  swimming  fine  and  have  not  lost  balance.
 
       Even  if  they  are  pregnant  I  don't  have  a  seperate  tankt  o  isolate  these  guys  don't  know  will  shifting  them  to  a  bucket  with  daily  water  change  will  help.
