I gave Ryu a full water change a few days ago. A white ring appeared around his eyes recently. Is this popeye??
: 2.5 filtered, unheated, conditioned with Prime ( 8 drops ).
: all safe and normal- checked :p
NLS Betta pellets
about 8 months
yes; 4 pellets a day
1 full and one 1/2 weekly. Last one on Oct 4th 2011.
rests at bottom a bit more, slight swelling of tummy, still active and flares at reflection. Normally goes to the surface of the water to breathe. not recently had any illness.
I quarantined him in a small cup immedietly
when I noticed this. He also looks sorta bloated and no sign of pineconing. If anyone sees anything indicating illness in the pictures below, please spot them out!! He has a red, purple, and brown marbled head which is normal. Im scared cuz sometime I see a dropsy fish with the same white ring. I plan on using a tsp of epsom salt along with a daily water change for his cup. He probably just has a minor popeye problem but I cant take any chances after I just lost my dear Natsuko and im still recovering from it :'(
thanks for any help!
