Hi guys,

 

My two year old Black moor's left eye has become noticeably larger. This eye has always been a little bit larger but as of late it has become twice the size of the other eye. I recently moved back from college,(2 and a half months ago) and during this move a had huge ammonia spike in my tank, coupled with the tap water at my new residence being terrible. I have since stabilized the water: ammonia, nitrites, nitrates are all 0. I was wondering what I should do to go about treating this if it is popeye?

 

Thanks!!

I'm sorry he is not feeling well. How many gallons is your tank? Also, what is your tap pH?

Would you be able to get him into a tupaware container of some sort for better above view pictures, please?
