My white mountain minnow fish looks bloated and its like swallowed a kidney bean. I think this is dropsy, is there any cure ?

Melafix perhaps?

Yeah, they can survive. But, most people would put it down.
The expensive route is antibiotics, like kanamycin.
I have had good success with quarantine combined with alternating Epsom salt bath (1 teaspoon/1gal) and methylene blue, double dose on bottle, for 30 minutes. Repeat daily, twice if possible.
