When it comes to fishkeeping it is wise to never under estimate the importance of patience and clean water! For anyone who had been following my thread on the awful eye injury and subsequent infection of my RT's eye here's an update. After being given the ok to introduce back into the display I decided to hold off a bit and continue with the HUGE water changes (every other day, 80%) The result has made me VERY happy. I didn't think the eye could get any better than it had, but it did. He now only has a slight cloudiness in part of the iris but the pupil is a nice dark black with no marring. He reacts when facing me sideways with that eye (good eye to the other side) so I'm sure he can see. Not sure on the accuracy of vision but he does have vision. He is eating so much better, just in the way he used to prior to the injury. I think I will go ahead and introduce him into the display in the next few days. Just shy of 60 days in QT, I'm glad I was able to be patient!
I had to share, as this makes me VERY happy.
I'm showing pics at its worst and as it looks today. I am thrilled.
