  1. Hi everyone, Please be patient with me as this is my first post on Kokos. I just discovered this forum over the weekend; hopefully my next posts will be on a lighter note! I have a ~5 year old Demekin. Her water was changed last week on Tuesday. The next day in the late evening I noticed her eye was a tiny bit red. I thought maybe it was a blood vessel that popped, so I waited until the next morning to discover it bloodshot. The first 2 days I put in 2 tablespoons of aquarium salt in her tank each day (4 in total). The third day (Friday) I decided to add some Maracyn Plus because I really started to worry. She has had 2 doses so far (one on Friday & one yesterday). Her eye is still ruby red and it has not changed since then. She can still see with her red eye; she reacts when I put a flashlight near her eye etc. She seems happy and it doesn't really seem to be bothering her. Her dorsal is up, and she is very active. Her appetite is most definitely there! Her tank only has marbles & her air stone (plus the filter arms that drop into the water). So I am reluctant to think her bloodshot eye is caused by an injury, though I don't know. There is only info out there for cotton eye, but nothing for red eye. I filled out the Q&A below, these were the results a day after her water change. I can redo them today if needed... Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
