Is this bacteria? (Red eye)


Recommended Posts

I recently added a new black moor to my tank. I’ve noticed since she’s gone in she has a small red mark under/at the bottom her left eye. I don’t recall seeing it in the shop so it might have already been there or when I moved her into the tank. 

Is this something that I need to treat as I have not seen this before? Any help is appreciated.

Sorry to see. I'm not really sure. Could this be what hobbyists call "red pest" disease? I think there's a bacteria cause. I'll take @Colu for assessment. Maybe @WhitecloudDynasty has some experience with this and goldfish too. 

I don't think it is I think it's damage to the lower part of the eye causing a small amount of hemorrhaging what I would suggest is adding a small amount of aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 5 gallons at that level it shouldn't harm your plants and monitor for a week if it starts to get worse before then gives us an update @Izzyf
