It really isn't a miracle cure, but it helps sooo much. Whenever I got a popeye betta (one female was beaten from another female for example) I did daily water changes, stress coat, good quality and variety foods, and epsom salt
Now, I had a betta who had a bacterial problem when I bought her... Her eyes were cloudy blue! I did water changes, no meds, and now she is back to full health!
Not sure I need stress coat, but the epsom salt could be a good idea.
That's amazing about the betta with the bacterial problem that cleared without any meds! Who would have thought?
I'm glad Charlie's activity level has not really changed and that he has still been making his bubble nests. The pop-eye is unsightly and still worries me. I'm not able to get to the store today to get the epsom salt. Hopefully the water changes will help in the meantime. I still have a lot of Maracyn II left over, but I don't know if he needs another round of antibiotics after it really didn't work the first time.
If it didn't work, I wouldn't bother. But because Maracyn 2 usually does work I would recommend just finding something that is stronger (for instance, I have kanaplex, some people recommend...tetracycline?) as a "just in case"
oh ok. that sounds good. I'm going to pick up the epsom salt tomorrow and hope that it works. Now it looks like he has some translucent thin flowy looking stuff from the top of his head. I hope it's not fungus. It was not there until after I gave him the medicine.
I tried to get a picture, but it is so small,thin, and translucent like it makes it hard to see and capture well on camera. It looks like it has gotten smaller since yesterday. Since I can't add a picture, the best way I can describe it is it looking like a think film that came off. It's not too furry, but more filmy like.
