I have had 3 dwarf gouramis 1 male 2 female for about a month now and I've recently noticed one of my females swelling she is very bloated at the moment I heard about dropsy which is common in gouramis apparently but she isn't showing any of the symptoms so could she be pregnant?

It's possible she's pregnant, but 2 out of 3 of the DGs I've tried to keep over the years suffered the same fate. One of the reasons I feel mine suffered this was the foods I fed at the time. Make sure to read the labels of your fish food. The first ~3 ingredients should be whole plant or protein matter. If it's grains and fillers, don't buy it.
