Goldfish White White Eye balls, Stringy Feces

Recommended Posts

  • Hi everyone,

My daughter absolutely loves her goldfish! She currently has a black moor that is sick. We noticed it sitting at the bottom corner of the tank a lot. It had white stringy feces and white eyeballs. I treated with PraziPro and medigold and saw improvement in what seemed to be an intestinal infection of some kind but have seen no improvement in the eye problem. Hope you guys can help!

Thanks!

  • * Any new fish added to the tank? No
  • * Any medications added to the tank? recently used Medigold to treat a what I think was some type of intestinal infection in the same black moor. She was pooping out white feces. I also added PRaziPro to the water in the amount of 2tsp. per 20 gallons.
  • * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment... I added Prazipro in the amount of 2tsp per 20 gallons 5 days ago and then again 2 days ago. I have also been feeding medigold for what seems to be an intestinal infection. It does not seem to be treating the eye problem though. However she is doing much better and not sitting at the bottom corner of the tank as much. I can still tell that something is wrong with her eyes though.
  • * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus?
  • * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.?
  • She stays at the bottom corner of the tank quite a bit.

Will you please test your tap water and post the results? Also could you post a pic of the eyes?

How long was he on medigold and how much did you feed? Is the white poop gone?

I'm sorry she isn't feeling well. Please get the tap levels for us too. And some pictures as well.

How have you been treating with the Prazi? And salt or salt dips? Have you treated with it before?

Did you do a water change prior to adding more? Is the UV sterilizer on your canister off?

Sniped :P

In answer to the questions above...

I will get the tap water levels and get back with them tomorrow.

I turned the UV Sterilizer off.

I will post pictures of the eyes tomorrow... it's late! :)

My daughter has been feeding MediGold for 6 days. She says not a lot. She didn't want to over feed.

The white poop is gone.

No salt dips as of yet.

I treated with PraziPro as the directions stated I think 2 tsp per 20 gallons. Then I did the same three days later without a water change.

You guys are awesome thanks for helping out!

That looks like the white is inside the eye? It looks like a cataract to me . . . .

Is there anything that you can do? It is definitely on the inside and both eyes...

Not that I am aware of. :(

His vision may be impaired but his sense of smell is still intact. That will help him get to the food. :D
