Ok I was thinking it was an eye injury. My puff hit something and his eye did what you seem to be describing . Went away fast too ....

That's funny. Well now that her eyes look normal again in to the 2nd problem.

What I thought was poop stuck to her anus i think it's actually a hemroid.

with that being said I read somewhere that you can massage it back in.

So I stick my hand in my tank and she was really curious. She kept trying to bite me. It was pretty entertaining. Finally she kinda swam into my hand and tried to touch the poop/hemroid and she then swam away fast. This went on for about 10 mins. She finally caught me off guard and bite my finger lmao. So I gave up. Went to take a nap came back and the poop/hemroid is gone.

Bang head this fish is worrying me to death. I'm treating her now with dr. G's medicated food. It kills a list of internal and external parasites. Plus I added a lil garlic to the water.

Tomorrow I'm adding a anti bacteria to the water for a 7 day treatment.

This is by far the coolest fish I've ever had.

I will do as much as I can to keep her in top shape.

It's funny now cause I just stuck my hand in the tank and she comes and swims right into it and i rub her spines and she appears to like it.

what disease are you treating her for? does she show any signs of parasites or bacterial infection? i wouldn't add a bunch of chemicals to my tank if i couldn't identify any disease. watchful waiting is the way i go.

I'm not adding chemicals.

I added garlic 5 ml

I added vitamins 5ml

And feed dr g's " might be a chemical in the food"

Thinking about adding melafix. It is a antibacterial water treatment. However I called the makers of dr g's fish food and they said to hold off on melafix that there fish food treat internal and external parasites and will improve health do much that it will help cure bacteria infections as well. I know the puffer has internal parasites " that's a given being a puffer and being wild caught" however I wasn't sure what his eye problem was thus is why I was gonna treat for bacteria however his eyes seem
Normal now.

well obviously you have the best of intentions and want your fish to be healthy. that's great. i am always a bit worried about putting anything in my tank. especially if the fish aren't really showing any obvious symtoms. i know from being on this site that many a fish went to aquarium heaven from getting over medicated. thanks for the info. i was just curious what you were treating her for. oh and the puffer is VERY cute. good luck with her.
