  1. Hey Guys, I'm new to the forum and I have a black moor that has developed some eye problem of some kind. The eyes have both got some dark patches the colour of their skin on the “bubble” of the eye. One has now nearly spread over the whole thing and this eye is also swollen considerably over the size of the other eye. The other eye has some whitish clouding with the darker patch. From what I can see the eye itself is bloodshot also. In terms of abnormal behaviour the fish is eating fine and is behaving the same as ever. There is some surface gulping, that again has always happened. Has been caught once or twice swimming quickly at the corner of the tank. The tank has two amazon swords, two other plants with small easily detached leaves that the fish don't like eating and a bunch of “pond weed” all anchored in the gravel. There is an eygyptian themed ornament which I though he may have hurt himself on but that hasn't been a problem before. I have another fish in the tank with no problems whatsoever and it shows non of the behavioural characteristics as above. And I have a second tank with another pair of fancies, black moor and fantail. These are both fine and have an identical set up but with some hornwort and other plants. Test Strips API: Ammonia=0 Nitrite=0.2 Nitrate=50 ph=6.6 KH=70 GH=70 tap: GH:140 KH:180 tank temp is 20C Difficult to read so I'm not sure if these are spot on! Tank is 15 Gallons and running since the 13th December last year. The filter is a stingray filter 15 300LPH Change the water once a week removing just over 30% of the water Changed 30% on Sunday There are 2 fish in the tank, one black moor and one golden fan tail. They are currently around 3 inches long. Use Interpet Bioactive Tapsafe to condition the water every week. Feed the fish standard flakes which are briefly soaked before I put it in. A generous pinch, twice a day, around three times a week I feed them diced peas instead of the second dosage of flake. No new fish as is already pushed for space, luckily not too big yet. Added some general tonic soon after the problem first showed on sat the 28th after a water change. The woman in the fish shop advised it as it appeared to be just the one eye that was swollen. But that eye is now nearly completely cover in black stuff a similar colour to it body around the eye. HELP? Sorry for the massive post but i wanted to give as much info as possible! Thanks!
