i don't really use many medications, but i've heard that anything ending in 'fix' shouldn't be used with bettas. something in it can damage their labyrinth organ.

I know I don't worry too much about my partially blind boy. I switched him to a slightly bigger and brighter pellet and he's thriving.

Is he a dragon? Sometimes their scales grow over their eyes.
I wouldnt use primafix, melefix or bettafix unless you cant find anything else. If you do use it, follow the instructions and do not OD on it. I would use a little less the recommended just to be safe.

If its a bacterial infection - tetracycline may work...maybe. I know it treats bacterial infections as does maracyn and maracyn2 but thats where my knowledge ends.

Theo ate New Life Spectrum Grow, along with my others. the strong smell of the pellet helped him find it easier. :3

it took Theo a while. in fact, he had to see the pellets fall first, right in front of his face, then nommed out of instinct, i guess. then, he figured out it was food, but it was too late. :V it'd fallen into the rocks. so, i kept Theo's tank bare-bottom, so he can eat the pellets that fall.

I'm not sure if its a white/platinum betta issue, I have a platinum boy with partial cloudy eyes, he's had it since I got him. Does seem to impair his vision a little bit, but only when its food at the top. If the food sinks, he can see it. Otherwise it doesnt bug him, yours should be ok :)
