My flame angel appears to have unilateral pop eye in her left eye. I just noticed it today and she was ok last night before lights out. What is my best method of treatment?
Everything seems spot on except for perhaps your trates. I've seen popeye develop slowly over time in tanks with trates at that level. I'd suggest a quick water change, but is there anything you can do to keep the trates at lower levels? (less feeding, more filtration etc)
To be Painfully honest, i let this tank slide for the past six months. I just was losing faith in it. But about 1-2 months ago i finally picked up steam and im working to improve it. Ive got a new powerhead coming in the next 2 weeks (jabeo wp40), new skimmer (curve 7) and a few other things, along with a big water change. Theres 11 other fish in the tank and they all are ok and eating like fatties, just the angel with this issue
Also i got a 5g tank set up as a hospital, i mixed new saltwater and i currently have it circulating with a heater waiting to reach temp and the salinity to stabilize. Im going to move her into that tank first thing in the am and keep a close eye on her.
I wouldnt recommend medicating a display tank, no matter the meds. For one, you have to dose for the volume of tank, hence why a 5-10g tank will save you a ton in meds. Also its usually best to seperate the ill fish because you then arent medicating healthy fish and also its easier to examine and monitor the fish by itself. If you cant put the fish in a sep. tank, i believe this med is ok for use in a dt
