Swollen eye with plenty of pus

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

It has been along time since my last post, I am back and unfortunately with a problem that I cannot seem to treat.

One of my Eletric blue Ahli display male had a fight with a male Taiwan reef and injured his eye. It has been a week since I have isolated him into a quarantine tank, and been treating him with Epsom salt, sea salt and melafix,  with 80% water change every 2 days... however the symptoms seems to worsen rather then get better, as after moving him to the quarantine tank, the eye was not as swollen and it did not have fungus or pus.

 

Could anyone please help me here, should I resort to a fungus medicine or antibiotics?

TIA

I would suggest bagging him up and take a trip to Labyrinth

Andrew could take a scaping on se what comes up under the microscope

that way you would have abetter idea of what is going on and how to treat it

just give Andrew a call 8068 4853  to work out a day

Well that could be a problem :smile:

I'm guessing it could be secondary bacterial but unless you can figure that out

you can recommend a treatment

metronidazole is used to treat hole in the head and may work

Thanks mate,

If I go with Metro, how long should I treat for and what would be the recommended dose?

I’ve used myxazin to treat cloudy and infected eyes before
