Betta with bulging eye


Recommended Posts

Hello, I noticed my betta has a bulging left eye with white around the perimeter of his eye. He is eating as normal but has been resting on bottom of tank a bit more than usual. In a 10 gallon planted tank with some pygmy corydoras. Greatly appreciate any help!

Usually when it's only one eye that's swollen it's caused by an injury what I would do is Epsom salt baths 1 table for 1 gallon for no more than 15 minutes for a 5 days that will help reduce the swelling and do a course of maracyn2 in food the active ingredient minocycline has anti-inflammatory properties
