I can tell you what happened in my case. In my case, no other fish got dropsy, but that was the only betta in the tank (the betta had dropsy). So maybe your other denison barbs are susceptible.

Wish we knew what was causing it.

Me too water is fine under 10ppm. Either way I removed them the red hook (being rehomed to lfs) and the angels are going in the 55.

Pretty sure that's what I lost my Dubois cichlids too. One had all the symptoms and within 5 days the 2nd one did. Both passed. I even quarantined the one per some advice from the board. My 2nd one still caught it. I'm pretty sad too, he was one of my favorites.
