I'm not familiar with the second med, so I'd use the Methylene Blue. Don't mix them... I'm not sure how they will mix.

I don't know them either. I really recommending Epsom salt instead of using the medications u don't know about. I know Oldfishlady treated with Epsom salt. The post i put it actually from her post about her treating Pop-eye .Sand her PM she will help.

Did u try to find MARACYN 1 & 2 ?

I feel bad if u can't find it . I have it at home it would take 3 days to delivery. U can start with Epsom salt and u can ordered those med's on line.

the epsom salt is just to remove the swelling, and it's already on the tank, about the medications... They are from trustworthy brands, I was reading about them, I'd say I will go for it since I already bought instead of waiting for an online delivery...

I think the eye is not getting any more bigger, which maybe is a good sign... I don't have any hope of him being able to see from it again, but he is cooping so far so good, at the rate it was going he was suppose to be dead already, really. I will go tomorrow morning change the expired medication and use it on him with the epsom salt.. I will keep posting on news.. Which I hope it will be good ones. =/

And no, I didn't find them, I did find Melafix though... Kinda expensive as well. But I didn't buy in the end.

huurrrmmm...
My bf's betta had a severe case like this. It took 3 weeks to get rid of (and she ended up loosing her eye) >.<;
We did the AQ salt and the maracyn meds combined and it still took that long to get rid of. :/
We also brought the temp. up to 82F to help fight the infection.

Yup! Like before it happened, nothing. She was perfectly fine and then BAM! POPEYE-STRAVOGANZA! O__o; It was so weird.

Dang... At least you ease my soul-pain knowing I'm not the only one having this weird nightmare... Also in a way is good to know even though it took almost a month it "healed" even though it compromised it's eye... Which I don't bother really... I just want my poor Fillet to be healthy again, with 2 or 1 eye. :P

And I like pirates :P

You aren't going to mix medications correct? For now, treat with one med and epsom salt to reduce the swelling. Once the swelling has gone down you can switch the Aq. Salt.

Aq. Salt is the normal treatment for popeye but should not be used when the swelling is so bad. Using Aq. Salt will make the swelling worse and could very well make the eye come out.
