Lord knows over the years, I have used more than a few toxic concoctions in my tanks in efforts to cure sick fishes but the trumpet snails always survived. Wish I could say the same for the fishes.
Eddy will not steer you wrong. (you know who I mean?)
1077- Ah, how did you know it was Eddy??
Have you ever seen such a bad eye injury? In your years of keeping Discus did you ever have to treat for something of this nature?
I'm prepared for the fact that he may lose his eye, so long as I can save his life. I checked on him this morning and instead of sitting on the bottom he's now mid tank chilling. His eye doesn't look any better but it doesn't look any worse either. Hopefully this means it's an improvement. The snails, in the meantime, are all over the tank acting as if the water is the same today as it was last week.
