Now i turned up the heat and started adding huge amounts of salt my dragon fish is dying now

A couple of things...

Do not feed fish when they are not feeling the best. They won't eat their food and that will make your water worse. Your best bet for any help for your fish is water changes. Do lots of water changes. When in doubt, a water change is your best bet.

This may have come in on the feeder fish. Feeder fish are kept in dirty conditions. If your fish get better I would seriously consider finding another way to feed your fish other than feeder fish.

You need to check your water, it sounds like a water issue to me. And then, probably, big water changes, and stop adding salt, it isn't helping. Does the pond have a cycled filter?

Hello there,
I'm a newbie and I guess my problem must be the water... I see your advises to change it, so that's exactly want I'm going to do!
Hope it works, thanks :)
