sick lil guy

i've already discovered blues clues has a tiny bit of fin rot, currently using bettafix to hopefully cure the problem.... however i also believe one of his eyes are now bigger then the other? it's hard to get a look at, he kinda hides in his plant and or if he's chilling on the bottom he's bent in a half moon shape a lil bit, i can't ever seem to get a clear view of it :(

my poor sick guy.... what all should i get to cure him? i'm only doing bettafix once a day, am i able to do it twice a day?

I looked at my bottle and it says a half a tsp daily for up to 7 days. I wouldn't do it twice a day. You could try Jungle Fungus cure or Jungle Fungus eliminator if the Betta Fix doesn't work. Some people here say that it doesn't work but it DID help one of mine. I'm kind of concerned that the eye problem might be popeye. You could also try more frequent water changes and salt, if you aren't already using it. Poor little Blues Clues (I love his name). I hope he gets along ok.

Maracyn 1 and Maracyn 2 can be used to treat popeye. Can you post a picture of Blues Clues so someone can tell whether or not it IS popeye?

Poor thing. Maybe you could look up some pics of popeye to see if you think thats what he has. I don't think you should treat him for it unless you are sure he has it. Maybe he hit his eye on something.

This is a picture of popeye. I bought a fish with it, and it will go away with frequent water changes.
