Is Dropsy contagious?

Hi guys,
Well my 7yr old weather loach (Mr.Ivan Whiskers) with dropsy is still hanging on, barely. He's covered with blisteres and puffed up so big. I hate to think he's suffering,
Should I put him back in the 50gal with his buddies? Will other fish pick on him? Or is he contagious? He's been in the 10gal sick tank alone for almost 2mos.

I have tried maracynII,antibacterials and penicilinin several times without any results. I have probably spent close to $100 on meds.
