Ph reading was 8 so maybe that is why it did not work

There is a possibility you might have used too much and that's why he didn't take well to it and feels worse. 1 packet is for 10 gallons so technically you'd supposed to take 1/10th of the packet so you basically did a double dose of it for him. And yes, pH might not be helping much here.

I wonder what will happen when you use a smaller dose for him, in this case smaller is better so he might react better to it the next time you use it. Can you start tomorrow and see if a smaller dose works better?

And no, Blueno does not have Fin Melt, I definitely would have seen it. He's just clamping his fins telling you that he feels uncomfortable but until that pop-eye is healed (he may lose an eye, just a warning) he's going to be uncomfortable so you're going to have to medicate him no matter what his fins are doing. Right now, Pop-Eye is your main concern

The best way to do it is just to mix the whole batch up and then take out 1 g. I use a 16 g storage tub to mix it in. It prevents inaccurate dosing.

Yes it is true I can mix it in big bucket
Sorry, I made mistake I did mix 1/10 th. I was doing exatly as instructed on package.

Of couse I can try Maracyn tomorrow only it sounds he needs smth stronger. I am telling you guys, his fins not just clamped, they glued, I even do not see many photos of the same in internet. All this time I search in internet trying to find very similar problem....frustrated...

I think whatever bacteria is causing the Popeye is the source of your other problems. He looks extremely stressed in the pictures you posted. I think the stress and bacteria are taking a toll on him. I guess if I were you, I would try treating with API General Cure and ES combined together. I would order Kanaplex tonight, and start that once it arrives if he is still sick. I would dose the ES at a max dose of 3 tsp or 1 tbs. That would be my plan of attack.
