So Rocco got popeye in both eyes the morning I left for a three-day vacation. You can imagine how freaked out I was. I put him in a 3gal and medicated 1tsp/gal Epsom salt and when I came back...one eye completely healed! Horray!
Unfortunately, the other eye is being a real pain. When I came back from my vacation I immediately changed the water and medicated 2tsp/gal in a 2gal for 7 days. Although he looks and acts alot happier and healthier than last week, his eye socket (or something) is swelling big time. His actual eye is a bit cloudy, but not as serious as when I left for vacation.
Oh, and he also has this finrot that WILL NOT GO AWAY UGH.
