Good Lord, I wonder how long I could go without food? Fat and Healthy? I wonder why those words don't often go together for woman? Seems unfair doesn't it, girls?

Kimmie your fish looks great. I wondered how his eye was coming along. I bet he will have a "moon eye" like horses get once injured they have that blue streak in their eye. Sometimes they can see fine, others not so well. I hope your fish gets his sight back, at least most of it.

Yep, fat & healthy only applies to animals, not people, lol. If he retains his sight, that's great, but if not I'm ok with that, as long as I have saved his life. I was sure he was a goner there for a bit.
Besides, a "moon eye" sounds kinda cool.

Hey Kym, his eye is healing up nicely. He's getting great care. Keep up the good work. I'll bet he can still see out of it. Maybe not clearly like his good eye but enough where it won't be a detriment.

My Polleni's eye is almost completely back to normal. Little bugger is real shy now and runs into his cave when I come in to check on him. Before he was very outgoing. Hoping this will pass and he'll get back to his normal self.

Did you also use Furan-2? I'm starting to think that particular medication is a good one to keep on hand and at the ready. I'm really glad your fish healed up so well!

That is looking sooooooooooo much better fishy doctor. I think you can breathe a sigh of relief now about the eye (at least a little sigh).

Now your challenge is getting him to eat so good luck with that.

Did I mention how gorgeous he is today? Every time I see a pic. of him (even with an imperfect eye), I have to stare at those markings and colors.

Keep up the good work

LOL, thanks! I have to admit that using a thread to document treatment and post pics helped me to be very vigilant in the care I was (and am) giving him. Thanks for following along with me!
