Dropsy? Or just a healthy eater?

Hi gang, i have a question i wanted to throw out and see what your opinions are. I have three botia kubotai's, and their bellies are sagging. Could this be dropsy, or could it just be that they don't know when to quit eating? lol Also, if one does have dropsy, do they lose their appetite? Or do they just keep eating like nothing is wrong? Cause these guys seem that they haven't quit eating, or searching for food since i got them, and i've had them for about a month now. Looking forward to reading what y'all think. Thanks for the feedback! Moon
