Okay, that makes more sense. Thanks.

Oh that is not good and usually means organ failure. Do you have any meds on hand?

I would stop salt treatments and use that.

Sorry I haven't been here. I'm in the middle of moving so I'm on and off on this.

Triton's Update

I was able to purchase the Tetracycline two days ago.So I switched to that from the other medication. He seems to be doing much better. No more swelling, redness, the cottony stuff seems to be disappearing. His eye is still popping with a bubble, but he is swimming, and breathing better. Name:  IMG_0735.jpg

Thats okay. Hope moving went smoothly. I did stop the salt before I added the medication.

Question Finished medication cycle

I did a 4 cycle treatment like the box recommended, plus the treatment of the original medicine. This is how he looks now. I also re-did his tank with brand new gravel and decorations to help rid of the bacteria. How does he look to you?
