Then go with the Kanaplex over the Furan-2. It's a much better med. I usually don't bring it up first because it's often very hard to find.

Yes, it can. In fact, if you really needed a hefty punch, you can actually combine all 3 (kanaplex, furan-2, and metro/General Cure). However, I'd hate to bombard TidBit with that just yet.

Tidbit is having a very bad day today. I went and picked up kanaplex and started him on it alond with using the API general cure. His eyes especially the one eye is looking worse. Cant get him to eat anything today. He seems to have lost his energy. Camera is holding out ok with a few smacks so I did get a few pics as he was going up for air. Getting worried even more.

Oh no! Not only is it pretty darn popped out, it looks like it's got a growth over it. Skin flukes can leave open wounds that get infected so it could be a swollen infected cyst over his eye. Nuts. The only thing I could suggest for that is switching to epsom salt at 3 tsp per gallon along with the meds. The epsom will help to reduce the swelling so the meds can swoop in and clear up the infection and the parasites (if any).
