Hello! I was told to come and ask this in the forums here. My black moor that I have had about 4 months had had what I believed to be pop eye since I had gotten her. At first it seemed to just be one eye larger than the other and when a friend told me it looked like pop eye I did the water changes and salt baths and that seemed to be working. The swelling went down I just moved her to a larger tank and she was doing fine (it's been up about two months now) Until just recently I noticed her eye was swelling again, and upon closer inspection the pupil is super dilated and there seems to be a bubble inside the pupil. The eye has gotten HUGE and I am not sure what to do... She is still very energetic and feisty. Her appetite is still excellent so she is all good there. She's he boss of the tank so my oranda doesn't pick on her at all. I did a water change last night and gave her another salt soak. I won't be able to afford any medications until the 17th when I get paid again and I fear it may fall out if i gets any bigger. Any advice would be awesome, thank you! In the first image here you can see in her reflection how huge and swollen her left eye is compared to the other. Here is a frontal view, hopefully you can see it.
Hi, A couple of days ago, I noticed that my Goldfish's eye is "popping" out, and it has a bruise below the eye, but then the eye started to bleed, and now the eye is full of blood. The eye pops out even more every day. When I noticed the eye problem, I moved this fish to a quarantine tank. Here's a video on what's happening http://youtu.be/WR_SsRKoHmE I added 3 Albino Red-finned Sharks (I had no idea that they were sharks), my local fish store didn't even know what they are. They said that it's okay to put those fish with my goldfish. I have 4 Goldfish (1 Comet, 1 Fantail, 2 Eggfish) in my tank (including the sick one) and 3 Albino red-finned sharks (for 2 days, then I moved those Sharks to my pond). My tank is fairly small (31320cm3 = 8.27 gallons), I do know that it's cramp but my little brother keeps on buying more fish. The sick fish (Eggfish) has a "brother" that I bought together with the sick fish, and he's doing great. The sick fish doesn't swim as much as he used to, and he keeps on staying on the bottom of the tank. He also eats a lot less. I don't know the water pH, Nitrates, Nitrites, Ammonia (since they don't sell test kits in Indonesia), but I use bore water (well water) purified through some UV tubes and filters. I added water conditioner, plant fertilizers, anti-stress zyme, and some salt. In my quarantine tank, I added water conditioner, anti-stress zyme, and salt. I feed my Goldfish Goldfish flake food, and frozen bloodworm every week or so. I rarely do water changes (like 25% 2X a month) because I have a decent filter. The tank have been running for ~5 years, but recently (~2 weeks ago), I changed everything (substrate, water, added plants).

Water conditioner (starter), Anti-stress zyme, Fertellizers, Salt [*]What do you feed your fish and how often? Goldfish flake 1x/day + frozen bloodworm 1x/week [*]Any new fish added to the tank? 3 Albino red-finned sharks [*]Any medications added to the tank Salt [*]List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. - (they never got sick) Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. [*]Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Frayed fins [*]Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Fish eats significantly less, Fish stays on the bottom and swims less often Pics: http://photobucket.com/Goldfisheyeproblempleasehelp Thanks
