weird spot on both eyes

So this morning I noticed that Drae had a weird spot on both of his eyes. It's kind of a milky grey/blue? They were not there yesterday... The only thing I have been doing differently is giving him salt baths because he ripped his fin... Here are some pics:


I'm sorry if the pictures are too big :(

This looks very, very similar to what's going on to my Betta fish right now as well. Yesterday, I noticed that he had a spot like this on his right eye (nothing else appears wrong though).

He recently recovered from a Fungus mini-outbreak earlier this week. I wonder if this has something to do with it (We finished treatment yesterday and did a water change this morning).

I hope someone can help you out with this... cause I think this is what's wrong with my Betta as well!

Yeah, nothing else appears to be wrong. He's still eating fine, swimming around normally, chasing the flying fox haha.
So maybe it's a fungus? I'm pretty worried, I didn't realize I would get so attached to the little guy... Hopefully someone can help us out!

The only reason why I don't think it's a fungus is because I was treating him for his fin fungus he had (Kordon's Rid Fungus worked excellent on it, BTW). So I doubt with that still in his water, that he'd get something else. But I don't really know much, so I could be completely wrong.

Anyways, while I'm upset that your fish has the same thing wrong as mine... I'm relieved to know that we may get an answer soon!

Best of luck to us and our fish. I'm pretty attached to mine as well.

Hey The Bear, so I went to a pet store and they said it's probably bacterial and so I bought some food that treats the bacteria internally, which they said should help. I'm gonna try it for a few days starting tonight and I'll let you know if it helps at all. Hopefully I'll see improvements quickly

Yep! Woke up this morning and the dots seem a bit smaller! Today is the day that I skip feeding them though so there might not be any changes other than that for a few more days... Do you think I should feed him today anyways? Oh, and the medicine that I got was at Petsmart is Jungle's anti-bacteria medicated fish food. It's only like 7 dollars so not terrible

Alright, thanks for the advice! I'll probably pick some of that up.

My fish seems to be in good spirits still, other than the spot on his eye. So hopefully this works. As far as following the medicating skippage, I am not really sure. I guess just go as it says on the label.

Hey The Bear, the dots seem to be almost gone from Drae's eyes, I'm just wondering if your fish is looking any better
