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?
