Running carbon for 12-24 hours will remove the prazi. The Prazi is in the main tank right? Also I would check ammonia nitrites and nitrates before adding him back just to be safe. It's possible you might need to do a water change before adding him back.

The prazi is in the main tank. I'll definitely do a water change before he goes back

It's been 24 hours in his hospital floating tank and he seems great! He's swimming about and has some color!

I'm very glad to hear he's doing better. How does his eye look though?

I think it looks better! I did a 100% change with a fresh dilution of the kanamycin and took a close look at his eye.. It looks less cloudy, and I can see the iris again!

I'd say it's gone from a milky white to a haze in his eye.

I'll take some pictures tomorrow when I get home from work.

on a side note, I can't believe it's almost Christmas! Holy crap....

I took some new pictures just now... I think he looks better.. he still has a ways to go but it's an improvement..right? I did another change with fresh kanaplex tonight.

Ignore the white spot on the side of the KK... I didn't notice it until after I took pictures..










Thoughts?

EDIT: I forgot to add that when you look down at him, his eyes are the same size again!

I'm glad his eyes are the same size again! :) How long has he been on the Kanaplex, remind me?

Also how many NLS are you feeding again? Whatever it is I'd make sure he's getting at least 6 a day.

He's looking better. :) I hope he turns blue again and doesn't decide to go red. I like that his fins are looking open and not clamped.

I get similar problems like this in all of my animals (including fish). It usually comes from old age, a brain tumor, or a hard hit to the head causing a pinched nerve in the eye which makes it seem like the eye is smaller or swollen because that nerve will either pull the eye farther into the socket or push it a bit outwards. Sometimes it will get better (depending on why that animal got it) and sometimes it just stays the same. My 13 year old dog has the same thing and her eye has looked cloudy since last year.. Doesn't seem to make much progress. She can still see out of this eye though, and doesn't seem to be in pain, so everything is perfectly fine with her.


Anywho, I hope that isn't what happened here!
Good luck with everything! :)
