You can sign-up for free on photobucket. Also, we need the form to be filled out. Without a clear picture/video and the information on the form, the moderators cannot advise you on the best course of action.

Tomorrow will be my 7th day with Melafix and 3rd treatment of ammonia lock.  sD068D766-35A6-447A-A8E6-AD71E88A0389_zpsometimes he can be a little active but also he sits at the bottom of the tank. The film that covers his right eye its still there. I don’t see a difference.

I tested the water and the ammonia was high. So i used ammonia Lock and now its normal.

I do water changes every 2 weeks and i have a 38 gallon with only him and a gold female oranda. they are almost 2 and half years old. Had there first fry this year and they are doing good.

Im concerned about him.. on the Melafix instructions says that after the 7th day i should do a 25% water change. and don’t know for how long should i continue this treatment.  Do you guys think its ok to maybe clean his eye with hydrogen peroxide? its only in one eye btw..or give them salt water baths? kind a lost… Please help!  i love this fish so much.
