Lol no I was up because we had an outdoor cat inside for the night in the lobby and I wanted to make sure no one kicked him out (it was freezing!) and I meant I feed them morning and evening about 3-5 pellets and I usually feed them less in the evening. And trust me I'm careful, I lost my first ever betta, Rodger, because I brought a sick one from petsmart and the stress of moving to college and then him getting the disease was not good at all. I do miss him :'(

Hi Roemegie. I didn't realize your betta was an elephant ear.

I skimmed the thread a bit but if your girl is acting normally, swimming normally and eating normally, then I would not worry about her popeye. In my experiences, elephant ear bettas tend to have bulgier eyes than other betta types. From what I saw in your pics, she's completley normal.

If you are still concerned, you can keep her in some epsom salts for another week but I think she's okay. :)

Yeah my boy bad when had pop eye and his brother did too (both from petco). I've noticed almost all the big eyed cases in cups are usually elephant ears but I literally just looked over at her and she looked a little sideways again -_- I'm going to do a 50% change and add some Epsom salt for her and I may do a little for my white elephant ear just in case :)

But thank you!! I'm hoping it's nothing but genetics! It's just her eye is cloudy :(
