Is this pop eye?


Recommended Posts

We have had this betta (Cinnabar) for about a month now. 6 days ago we noticed his eye was cloudy and swollen. We immediately moved him to a hospital tank from the community tank (with mollies and Glow tetras). We have been treating with maracyn for 5 days now (recommended directions) and I has not improved or declined. Should we continue the treatment or see if medicating with salt would work better? the tank parameters are GH- 100, KH-120, pH-7.1, and NO2 and NO3- 0, water temperature- 78F. This is the first time we have experienced this and would appreciate any advice! Thanks!!

I would try the salt since you're not seeing results from the anti biotic. 

Is it okay to treat with salt and API erythromycin at the same time? Or try one for the full treatment and then the other? 
For salt, what kind? Epsom? Aquarium Salt or Marine Salt? How much? 1 tablespoon per 10 gals? And do you water change out the salt?
