black moor has injured eye

I have a black moor that is very aggressive about feeding in the rocks. Today he has a terrible swelling in his eye. Im not sure how badly he has damaged his eye, and im not sure what to do. I have done a partial water change. Changed the filter medium. The tank has about 1 teaspoon of salt per gallon and its temp is at 74 degrees. I dont have an isolation tank, but will have one in five days (though not set up properly). Help. thanks

Keep up with water changes every couple of days, up the temp a smidge (a degree or two), and if you desire, try some broad-spec antibiotic.

It looks so very swollen, do you think he will lose it. It was a very sudden thing, it was fine and then 4 hours later it was terrible. Im so afraid he will lose it. sigh.

Have you begun medicating with a broad spectrum antibiotic yet?

I would go with Maracyn-2...I would suggest at least the 24 tablet size box, since you can't just pop over to your LFS.

Ill have my friend bring some in on monday. Tonight his eye seems less swollen and the "scab" looking growth seems to be soft and sloughing off. I cant tell if the eye is gone or the scab is just coming off. He seems more active and is very interested in oranges. In fact all my fish seem to raeally really like oranges. Hmm but I digress. Thanks for the advice. Ill give it a go.

Good to hear that he is doing better...a shame about the eye, but don't give up hope just yet, you might be surprised.
