  1. He is eating normally, I usually separate him from my fantail at mealtimes so she doesn't hog all the food. He rests on the bottom at times, but when I go near the tank he gets right up and back to business.
  2. When I first noticed it in the beginning of February the size difference was only slight, but by the end of the month it was really obvious and starting to concern me. It's just gotten larger and larger since then. I believe the white lump in it was what prompted someone at the LFS to tell me it was an infection of some sort though...? Should I worry about that at all? I can try to get a clearer picture of it if need be! Thanks for all your help
  3. Okay, trying the pictures this way! Sorry I didn't see all the image/url options from my mobile device, now that I'm on an actual computer things got much simpler. (Also, how do I got back and edit/delete that previous post? I'm new to this whole forum business )
  4. Oh sorry! I'll fix that right away! The food is just called anti-bacteria and is made by jungle
  5. Here is a link to photos showing the eye swelling and the lump DNAlex removed link 05/03/14 3:10pm CST
  6. My black moor, Pistachio, has an extremely swollen eye with a cloudy lump in it. He also seems to have fin rot. It has been going on for over two months now (I think I originally posted about him back in Feb.) and he has shown no improvement despite a round of melafix and later a round of Marcryn II. I have been feeding an antibacterial pellet food all week, but so far no luck with that either. Should I repeat one of these Mede? Try something different? I have salt, tetracycline, prazi-pro, and jungle fungus clear tabs on hand but am willing to track down anything that would work! Photo and Other info below: Test Results for the Following: Ammonia Level: 0ppm Nitrite Level: 0ppm Nitrate level: 0-5ppm Other Required Info: Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API drops Water temperature? 72F Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 29gallon, ~1 year What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Penguin Biowheel 350 also a small sponge filter How often do you change the water and how much? 10-15% every three days How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Today, ~15% How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 fantail and 1 black moor, bodies ~2-3 inches long What kind of water additives or conditioners? prime What do you feed your fish and how often? Omega One small pellets, 2-3 times daily Supplemental veggies ~once a week Any new fish added to the tank? no Any medications added to the tank? not currently List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. One round of Prazi about 6 months ago, one round of melafix about two months ago, one round of Marcryn II about one month ago, currently feeding antibacterial food. Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? frayed/ragged fins, bulging eye with small cloudy bubble in it, white specks which I believe are breeding stars on gills and front fins Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? No change in appetite, occasional bottom sitting.
  7. My black moor Pistachio's tail is looking very ragged, and several weeks ago I began to notice that one eye was larger than the other. I upped my water change amounts but the condition has not improved. Today upon close inspection I can see some sort of small bubble on his pupil. Time for meds? I have melafix on hand, would that be worth trying? And if so, should I treat the whole tank just to be safe or separate him? If melafix is not the way to go, what should I do instead? Sorry for all the questions, just want to help my baby! Here are my stats and such Test Results for the Following: Ammonia Level: 0ppm Nitrite Level: 0ppm Nitrate level: 0-5ppm Other Required Info: Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops?

I catch the black moor resting on the bottom sometimes, but as soon as he sees me he gets right back up. No change in appetite. Oh and this might not be relevent, but he and my female fantail spawned for the first time last week, he has since been chasing after her more often than usual (although this doesnt seem to phase her at all) I have a picture I can try to add as well if needed
