help, fish has huge belly. Is it dropsy?

my female cory and rainbow fish seems to have big bellies.Its mostly the female ones with huge bellies. They all are very active and I don't see any scale pine coning or bulging eyes but they have fat bellies which makes me fear about dropsy. I usually feed them microworms twice a day. But for planning to not feed them for next 2 days while I treat the tank with api melfix and pimafix as well as aquarium salt. I do 25% water change and gravel vac twice a week. I attached a link to my reddit comment with pic since imgur isn't working right now. Thanks for the help
