You have responses from this on other places...what else did you need that made you post the same thing again last night?

You are treating the pop eye and the trigger is eating. That is all good. Keep pristine water conditions and keep it as stress-free as you can and it should be okay. It will take time. I want to say the one time one of my angels had it, it took 2-3 weeks after starting treatment before it looked good again.
