Alex S. Posted April 26 Share Posted April 26 I'm afraid my Betta has come down with Popeye. I'm not 100% sure how long her eye has been bulging like this, but I know it began recently. I am currently treating the water with 1 pack of Maracyn/ 10 gallons of water for 7 days (per Aquarium Co-Op's recommendation online). Other than the bulging eye, she doesn't seem to have any other symptoms. She actively swims around the tank as usual, and has had no change in her eating habits. Does anyone have any experience with how long it takes to cure Popeye or have recommendations on other things I should be doing to help her? I've been worried about her even though she seems to be acting fine. She is in a 5.5 gallon with two nerite snails with the following water parameters if that helps: pH: 7.2 Nitrates: <10ppm Nitrites: 0 Ammonia: 0 Hardness: 300ppm KH: 80ppm Temp: 78 F Thanks in advance for anyone's help. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
