I posted about this before, but his eye has gotten bigger. I've quarantined him from the main tank almost 6 months ago and he's not getting any better. I am thinking of starting rounds of prazi in case there is an infestation causing the swelling. Any advice in the right direction would be appreciated (because I dont know what I'm doing)! Thank you(:

Doesn't look like something that will go away. Doesn't seem to be hurting the fish. It's an aesthetic issue. I say don't bother with it at all.

Do you think it's fine if I move him back to the main tank then? I'm scared it might pop or it may get worse. Should I do rounds of prazi on the main tank after I move him back? (I just finished my 3rd round for him in the q-tank.)

Yes just move him back. We don't think this will respond to any treatment.

Okay I will do that tonight! What can I do about the redness in the gills? After the 3 prazi rounds it's still kind of there. You can see it in the first and second pictures, and I'll send you new pictures tonight.

Looks like you've gotten rid of some of that stuff on the bottom. Good! Can you point out the gill issue? I don't see it. He looks okay. Just keep an eye on water parameters and possibly switch them to a richer/better food. What do you feed them again and how much?

Maybe you're right haha I'm being paranoid about it because someone in a post I made in the past said that his gills showed that there was an infection

Im feeding them tetrafin flakes, a pinch every other day. Should I feed them more?

That doesn't look like an issue to me. A pinch of flakes every other day really isn't enough. We suggest a solid pellet food for goldfish fed at least once daily. Omega One and New Life Spectrum are popular ones.

Okay thank you very much!! You finally put my mind at ease I can't wait to finally put him back in the main tank after almost a year (:
