That looks like popeye but.. hard to see.

Do you have a water test kit? Can you take it somewhere such as LFS to test?

WC every other week is a little infrequent. Might want to consider increasing those.

I don't, ran out and still waiting for the ones I ordered to come in. Should hopefully be here in the next day or two. Ok, what do you recommend? Once a week or more for water change? When I get home I will try to get a better pic. She hates when I try to get pictures lol! If it is popeye do you have any recommendations for what to treat her with?

I also forgot to add that she eats bloodworms and brine shrimp at the top.

Aw, this is good to hear! I was starting to wonder about your gorgeous Coral. How is she holding up now?

Thank you! She is doing wonderful, thank goodness! I am very attached to my little Coral, so I am VERY relieved. Her face and eye are pretty much back to normal. She has a tiny red spot under her eye, but it is just about gone. I will attach some pictures I took today! =)
