* Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? There appears to be blood pooling in the eyeball... I noticed a blood spot (first pic) about 3 weeks ago. I have been leaving it alone thinking she had just gotten poked by the plastic plant and that it would heal without help (ugh).. I didn't notice change until tonight. The eye was always larger than the other, but today I can see it is definitely swelling beyond what is normal for her and now there is more blood! :(
* Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? She has always been a surface gulper but everything else seems fine behavior wise. Still active and eating.

Blood in a fish's eye often indicates some sort of trauma and typically will resorb on its own . . .  Is there anything in the tank he could have injured himself on?  A full tank picture might be helpful for us.

 

As far as the swelling goes, do you happen to have any pics of the fish's eyes from above from before this all happened?  I'm not convinced it's swelling vs normal telescope eye growth.  :idont

I had this plastic plant when it happened so that's my only real guess... Now the tank is just bare aside from the filter tubes and sponges. I have been feeding them more in the last few months since I found out I was underfeeding... She has gained just a little weight, perhaps it all went into the eye lol

Thanks for the pics.  Very helpful.

 

The eye has definitely grown :teehee      What part of the eye in particular are you concerned is swelling?  It looks like perhaps there is some swelling towards the rear of the eye and the bottom but it looks like that in the pic you posted from 3 weeks ago . . . .  

 

In case we need meds, can you tell me what you have on hand?

I thought that the whole eye was swollen, it seemed a little fast to be normal growth but I don't know  :no: I think the eye looks larger from pic 1 to pic 2 but I don't have the top view from 3 weeks ago to compare.

 

I have Furan 2, General cure, HEX shield pellets, Stress guard, Prazi, some melafix and pimafix, epsom salts... I believe that is all but I could order something else if it's on Amazon.

Let's start with Epsom salt for now at 1/2 tsp per 10 gallons and hold off on any other meds.

It certainly doesn't look any worse.  I do think it's normal growth.  Let's keep the Epsom in for a week and if nothing changes go ahead and remove it.  :D
