I just noticed my pink kisser Frank has what appears to be popeye... and I don't know whether to associate the popeye with this greenishbrown bruise that has been on his forehead for 2 months..
His eye's are coming out of his head and I can see black in behind both eyes where the eye is coming out, like they are bruised or something.. but no redness.....
I moved him from the 55 to my 10g qt. I had fish in the qt right before this and moved them into the 32g(thank god the 2 weeks were up) So I did a quick water change right before he went in. No other fish in the 55 are exhibiting any signs of illness.
The parameters for my 55 are: ammonia .2 gH 100 kH 200 pH6.8 (fluctuates between this and 7.2)
nitrates and nitrites 0
Now, the parameters for my qt are ammonia .3 gH 170 kH 100 pH 7.3 nitrite 0 nitrate 10
I keep my tanks at 78-79 degrees. I do 15 or 20% water changes almost every 4 or 5 days right now.
I was going to add some salt to the Qt after he got settled because I read it aids in preventing infection????
Sorry so long, I wanted to provide as much info up front as I can, any and all comments/advice wanted!
