Betta with Popeye; Maracyn+ Maracyn 2 no effect


Recommended Posts

Hi all, and happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate! I'm hoping for some help with my Betta. He's got popeye, one eye very big with a thick white rim, the other eye is not as big but is cloudy. I've done a round of Maracyn and then a round of both Maracyn and Maracyn 2 with zero improvement. Not really sure where to go from here other than the exotic pet hospital, which I am going to call them and see about getting him in but if anyone has any cheaper options I'm all ears.

It could be an injury to the eye and that's why it's not responding to the antibiotic medication the damage could be permanent or needs more time to heal what I would do is add some aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 3 gallons that will help reduce fluid buildup in the eye if you have live plants I would use a lower dose of salt  1 table spoon for 5 gallons for a week @BeeGryphon
