You need to be really careful about pumping drug after drug after drug into him. There's only so much his body will be able to take. I do expect Triple Sulfa to take care of this. The only other thing I can think of that could work at this point would be Furan 2 but I just can't imagine that working in a case were Kanaplex and Triple Sulfa wouldn't. That would be an oddly resistant strain, which I guess is possible but so unlikely.
How often/how much water are you changing daily/weekly now? You're using a siphon/gravel vac right and not just skimming water off the top?
How is he acting other than the eye being cloudy? I'm not sure of the likelihood he could have just plain lost it permanently. It's all the right size yes? I can see looking back at the series of photos his eye has improved. What does it look like now?
What/how much are you feeding?
I change 50% of the water twice a week. Sometimes it's only once. I do have a gravel vac and do use that. I don't use it every time, I'd say I vac the gravel every other water change.
He spends about 80% of his time laying at the bottom of the tank.. he'll come up if he hears me upen the lid to feed him. He seems to be more active at night..as far as swimming around goes.
His eye is not popping out of head, but it's cloudy and almost looks like a bad cataract. It might be a tad larger than his healthy eye. It's about as bad as it was in the beginning now.
Before the eye issue he would swim around super fast and constantly.
I feed him4-5 NLS pellets every other day and frozen brine shrimp, not at the same time however.
