Dalmatian Molly cloudy eye
 
Please help! My dalmatian molly recently had popeye but that went somewhat went away. He eyes are just a tiny bit more bulged then a normal one. Now he seems to be blind. He runs into the side of the tank and only spends his time at the top or laying at the bottom. I think he has cloudy eye. I use aquarium salt and Tetra fungus guard. He is in a small 2 gallon Tank and I change the water every day. does anybody know what else could help?

What are the water parameters? GH and pH. And temp.

Salt is in this case OK, as mollys can tolerate it. I wouldn't add the Fungus Guard though, this can make things worse.

How did you treat the popeye?

Mainly Salt and daily water changes and It seemed to go away. I will let you know the water parameters when I get some test strips. The temperature is about 77

Water changes are probably your best method of cure, with the salt. I asked about paramters because molly will always have troubles in soft and/or acidic water, and this is one such issue. The harder the water the better.
