And yes, I am stalking your fish.
LOL, and I'm stalking him. I sneak up on him, just to check how his sight is progressing, or the lack of progession I should say.
He still backs away when I approach so I know he has some sort of vision left. He doesn't "see" me until I'm about a foot in front of the tank so I suspect he is only seeing shadows out of that eye, but still, that's something considering the extent of his injury.
Pics are a little tough to take right now. I'm no longer medicating him with antibiotics but I am treating the water with Indian Almond leaves. The leaves stain the water heavily which makes taking pictures impossible. I'm using the leaves based on my own research. They are reputed to stave off bacterial infection and my fish seems to be doing very well. It's tough to keep a barebottom tank (with no plants) at the same ph as the Discus display tank so the leaves are doing a great job of maintaining the QT tank at the exact same ph as the display. I'm getting ready to do a 90% w/c and I will try to take a pic. The water I use for the changes is already aged and stained so doubtful a pic will be any good. But, he's doing GREAT, thanks for asking!!
