Oh my god, I'm so sorry I don't think he has much longer. Fins deteriorating that quickly with that cyst stuff, that's no good. I have absolutely no idea what's going on with his eye, I'm really sorry. But yes that extra slimy stuff is just him shedding his slime coat.

What meds are you using on him right now?

maracyn 1 and 2.

the finrot stuff has been a crazy long term battle and it hasn't gone away for months now even though i change the water every day.

yeah...i kinda expect him to go belly up sooner or later. he is still responsive and eating...no sign of lethargy. he's 3 years old now so hes living alot longer than i thought he would!

It looks like what cataracts looks like...only out of the eye not in it....weird >.<

I'm glad he had a good life though. You can try other antibiotics to see if it will help like KanaPlex (I'd get this one if you can), or Furan-2 may help as well and then Tetracycline might work.
