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!
