Poop Poop POOP! Ok so I've always noticed back home that the betta's with pop eye seemed to be exclusively big eared males (they didn't have females).
I was thinking of buying some almond leaves because I've heard that those are good for naturally helping the bettas instead of loading them on medications, should I? (I may just go ahead and get some just in case)
Well I thought that was only at home because there isn't a petco near my college.
Well my new blue female has one eye that is getting cloudy and isn't looking that great 0_0
I'm getting REALLY worried because maybe it is in all big earred that pop eye is a big issue?? I don't really have any medications on me except Maracyn Two and I also don't want to jump to medicating unless it is a must do!
I just did a water change when I noticed.
I have her in a 2.5 heated tank. I am planning on doing 20% water changes either once a week or every two weeks (depending on ammonia levels) and then 100% water change every 4 to 5 weeks. I just got her and my other one about a week ago and they were with the transporter for a week before then so this must be from something I have!
Here are some pictures
This is one of the first pictures I took of her. I was using a different setting so that the colors would pop and I also had the flash on. SO I don't know how much that would effect this
And here's another only this is her now 'good side'
Here's some from the day I got her
Like every betta parent I want to hear that I'm totally wrong but I also understand that I may be right :'(
Here are the pictures from today:
Notice how this eye is more cloudy
Here's another one, to me I can notice there's a slight size difference
Here's another one of that side, I would love it if it was just her pigments but I don't think so
I don't know if maybe the background effects this or the lighting but here is one of the better pictures I got of her so you could see both sides
Here's her 'good side'
Another good side
