Hi all, Im wondering if any fellow fisk keepers could shed some light on my comet.
I have a tropical set up which i never have problems with. Its my poorly gold fish im worried about.
About 10 days ago i noticed my comet was acting abit weird, in that i mean staying at the bottom, not swimming around, just going like rocking movements. I checked water with tests etc, all fine, but did water change anyway. My other comet was showing signs of dropsey so i treated the water etc etc initally i thought maybe this one was getting dropsey but total diff symptoms. The dropsey one is totally better, i added the healing salt to the tank whichs aids recovery from bacterial infections.
The comet in question has bulging eyes.... do yep i thought POPEYE however hes not responding to the treatment?? he hasnt eaten in 7 days, still silent at bottom of tank,hardly swimming.... im at a loss now what this means....
Water quality is spot in, I do partial water changes every 3 days to keep waste level low.
Ive read up on popeye and i cant find much on it....
thanks in advance
