Diamond tetra with white fungus on eye

I just noticed it a few seconds ago. What is it? How do I treat? 013.jpg

They're are no other fish in the tank, but the diamonds.

The temp is 77.

I have some Tetra parasite guard, the ingredients are Praziquatel, diflubenzuron, metronidazole, and acriflavine.

I'm so sorry, dear . . . I wish you could have gotten the help you were searching for. *sigh*
I'm sure you're keeping a CLOSE eye on the rest of them, hopefully this is an isolated incident.

I'm not sure what that might have been, it did not look much like fungus in the photos. But i won't guess at diseases or cures. Was the eye bulging out at all? It looked a bit like it was in the first photo...

The real issue is, have any other fish developed this? If not, it may have been isolated.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

None of the fish have gotten it. I think it was the result of another sick I had, it died also. I mentioned it in my other thread. The other have ever was very unhealthy and knew it wouldn't last long. I think it had a parasite based what I already know.
