Water Change/Eyes popping
I just did a 25% water change and after I was done, noticed that Neekis's eyes looked like they were popping out. I don't think it's pop-eye. I was wondering if it could be due to me not letting the new water sit for awhile b4 adding it back in. Like maybe there's too much aeration in the new water from the tap. Has anyone else experienced this?
At first I thought he had swim bladder because he started to rest on his tail about 1-1/2 wks ago. I held back his food for a day, then slowly increased his food back to 2 pellets in the am and 2 pellets in the pm. Also, I put a baffle on the filter, even though he really enjoys swimming back and forth in the current. I just thought he should mellow a bit. I also did extra water changes.
Since he's still sitting on his tail (but acts normal otherwise) I think he may have a problem with this pelvic fins. I noticed that they seem more floppy than b4. Not sure how he could have injured them. At the time he started doing this, it looked like he may had been tail biting, although I doubt that. Maybe he could have gotten sucked onto the side of the Aqueon filter suction tube?? His tail fin is already looking better, but his pelvic fins are still floppy. Anybody have any ideas??
