Hello, my large black moor has developed something awful with one eye. It began Sunday with what looked like a scrape/burn (though he lives in a tank with no decor or heater, just the filter intakes), no redness just missing skin/scale. Changed 90% water and treated the tank with .15% salt. Not much change over the days, no worse or better. This morning it was terrible and bleeding quite a bit. The areas are not deep or lacerations, the missing “skin” leaves a white semi smooth patch below, not raised and one side of the scrape is red and bleeding. I’ve moved him to my hospital tank with .15% salt and swabbed with peroxide - After 2 hours in the hospital tank it has stopped bleeding. Images 1 and 2 are just after peroxide swabs, images 3, 4, and 5 are a few hours later. Advice, identification, and treatment options? I have, on hand - hydrogen peroxide, aquarium salt, epsom salt, Melafix, Pimafix, Cyropro, Prazipro, Blue Ridge Medicated food Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) Main tank 0 Hospital tank 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank) Main tank 0 Hospital tank 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) Main tank 5~10 Hospital tank 5 * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrate level(Tap) 0 * Ph Level, Tank 7.1 * Ph Level, Tap Didn’t test Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops?

Hello, I am a new member here at kokos goldfish forum. I created this account because, well... I have made some big mistakes, and I need help! I'm a younger teenager, and I'm still fairly new to fish keeping. Though I've done countless hours of research, I thought I knew everything you could know. That is until I stupidly didn't put a screen on my siphon, and my new little oranda baby swam head first into the siphon. His eye popped out of the socket. I was in shock, so I filled up a 5gallon tub, put a small amount of aquarium salt in it, stress coat, and water conditioner. I put him in the tub, and he seemed to be in shock. I asked on my Instagram account "ambersgoldies" what to do. No one in the fish community had a clue. I now do not know if I made the right impulse decision, but as it appeared the optic nerve and vessels were still attached, I thought the eye had a chance, so I gently put it "back" into place. After that I have left it completely alone. At first, nothing changed. Then it started healing, and looking great. I was extremely happy. Then I noticed a little dot in his eye that appeared to be blood. It got bigger and bigger, and now it's around almost his whole eye. (Note I do not know for sure if it is blood, or swelling, or infection.) he is swimming around lively, and eating, and other than his eye, he looks healthy. I am doing 100% water changes daily. He is 2 1/2 inches. I have 2 questions, 1, what do you think the red is, and 2, what steps should I now take? Thank you so much.
