Sick Black Moor

Hi, our black moor has a puffy eye. He is eating normally. The water quality wasn't good. We have changed his water twice since Friday morning. Will this clear up with water changes or do I need medication?

TIA,

Natalie

What are your water parameters now? Even with water changes, there can be nitrogenous waste in the tank. And your pH? That too can play a part.

Its quite possible, with continued good water husbandry, the cloudy eye will clear up by itself. Give it a week or so; if it doesn't start to clear then more drastic measures will need to be taken (or if it starts getting worse before the end of the week).

What kind of salt, iodized table salt? His eye does look better now. It is not as cloudy and the swelling seems to have decreased.

No, don't put iodized salt in a FW tank. You can put in non-iodized table salt, or aquarium salt. Aquarium salt is salt for a FW tank. If you use salt, I would use the aquarium salt. The Jungle product line has aquarium salt.
