These things can be overcome
Thank you for answering! She seems ok, when I feed them it gets worse so I've been trying to feed her food into the water so she doesn't have as much chance to gulp air. Part of me wants to move her but she seems ok where she is and I don't have as much plants in my 5 where she could get under and avoid floating to the top. But if you think its best for me to let her in my 5 gallons for a few days then I will gladly move her (especially since I have two new girls).
I also noticed that when she could swim normally she would be going around the tank fine but when she made it to the top she wasn't really straight. So I don't know if she just has issues after the whole stress of her eye thing or just right now from being in a new tank she has lots of issues? Who knows but do you think I should just be watching her and only move her if it gets worse?
Also I'd like to say I'm glad your girl hasn't had any more problems and that your sorority is going awesome!!
