The bad things just keep coming! My crowntail girl, Cleo seems to have popeye.. Both her eyes are more than slightly swollen and have a white ring around the area where the eye stops and the head begins. I started a sorority a few days ago but I removed her from it almost immediately as her fins got badly torn, other girls in there are not showing any symptoms. Yesterday I found her having white tendrils on her body but I changed the water and they were gone. I think it was slime coat shedding.
What kind of treatment should I give her? And I don't get any fish antibiotics so could someone tell me dosage if I was to use human antibiotics?
