Troy328 Posted January 24 Share Posted January 24 Water Parameters: pH 7.8 Nitrates Somewhere between 20ppm and 40ppm Nitrite 0 Ammonia 0 Water Temperature 77 F One of my Cherry barbs has a white, bulging eye. Originally, the eye appeared only slightly swollen and slightly cloudy. The water parameters were ok, but I did a 50% water change anyways. She is the smallest female in the tank, and so I thought maybe she was getting picked on a bit too much by the males, perhaps caused by an injury or stress. However, since that water change last week, she originally improved a tiny bit, but now her eye has gotten much worse. The eye is bulging much more and is almost completely white now. I have attached a picture of her good side, a picture of her bad side, and two pictures of her from the front to demonstrate the bulging of the eye. No other fish appear to be showing any symptoms. Any thoughts of what it might be? Should I just start doing more frequent water changes? Will medicine be required, and if so which ones? I should also mention that I have kuhli loaches in the tank, so if I do administer medicine, options that take scaleless fish into consideration would be appreciated, unless I decide to quarantine her on her own.
