You sure his eyes gone as it dont look like an empty socket in that pic. I would get Bandit on medicated food immedietly to prevent secondary infections due to his having suffered the injury to his eye.

medigold or metromeds which are both medicated food. If you have any Maracyn put that in as its important to prevent infection :)

Just keep him in perfect water conditions till you can that goes a long way to helping also add some aquarium salt if you have it :)

The packet should have instructions, FC. Have you looked?

Did you get the tabs? If so, I think it is 2 tabs per 10gals dropped into the tank on day 1. Then 1 tab p/10 gals for days 2-5. I think you need to remove any light so as not to de-activate the meds. Check the box to be sure, though.

Its one tablet per 10 gallons. You have to repeat that after 24 hours (add another) 5 times. Check instructions it depends on the maker maybe.

I think since your QT is 7 gallon that may be tricky. I would go with salting to 0.3% for about 3 days and then back down to 0.1% for a week. That should help the eye area heal.

I'm sorry Pixie. Double post..
