When you have pineconing one of the symptoms associated with dropsy that can because by a number of things organ failure causing fluid buildup internal bacterial infection parasitic infections the most effective treatment I have found is a course of metroplex in food  feeding a small amount twice a day for upto 3 weeks dose the tank with kanaplex to treat any possible internal bacterial infection and add aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 2 gallons that will help reduce the fluid buildup and aid Gill function and add essential electrolytes add an extra air stone during treatment if you are going to treat I would quarantine as medication can be harsh to healthy fish  so I would treat the sick on it's own even with the treatment I recommended there no guarantee it will recover @alcidmr
