Very Sick Black Moor 911
Tank Size: 3 Gallons (Three plastic plants, gravel)
Tank Occupants: Black Moor Goldfish(Shannon), Orange Fantail(Ray)
Residence: Dorm Room in Springfield, MO
I've had my black moor since August of last year. He was perfectly healthy for a long time. I got him his tank mate in September. This fish was and still is in excellent shape. Back in February I experienced an issue with Popeye in my black moor. I was told to treat it with an antibiotic powder that goes in the water. That stopped the problem and the fish was fine. Now just recently the popeye has come back and is so bad that the poor black moor is blind. I went back to using the antibiotic but it hasn't seemed to help. I thought he had dropsy because his scales were pineconing out but that has resolved. His mouth looks like it has shrunk and because of this he cannot properly eat the regular food. I put in some feeders because I'm leaving to go out of town tomorrow, I also thought that it would allow him to eat. Unfortunately, Shannon can't see the feeders to know they're there and eat. He is less active than usual, isn't eating, and it looks as if he's lost some weight. Can anyone help me out?
