Small film-ish covering on part of my oscar's eye

This is a discussion on Small film-ish covering on part of my oscar's eye within the Tropical Fish Diseases forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; --> It's odd because it looks like groups of salt at places and then just single grains in other...

Is it possible to treat for both at the same time? And what should I use if it is bacterial?

Normally I don't recommend this but since you have already started the ich treatment and since the small wounds left by ich could get infected by current bacteria I will tell you this:

Treat with both the ich meds and antibiotics, just make sure you aerate the water REALLY well (buy an air pump and an airstone, it will come in handy for future illnesses). the course of antibiotics should only take a week thankfully and after that continue to treat the ich for a month.

Thank you for all the help, I started treating them for bacteria yesterday, I notice they aren't really swimming much anymore, and haven't ate in like 2 days. Not only that my room is now starting to smell, I am just hoping that it takes awhile for the medicine to kick in.

Smell?! What like?

Try tempting them with some frozen bloodworms... it helps sick fish a lot when you can get them to eat.

Also try keeping the tank lights off so they aren't as stressed and be sure to get an air pump running in there.

It smells like warm dirty socks. I have the lights off, and the air pumps running.

I wanted to add my ammonia is at 0 still along with nitrites and nitrates, so the smell shouldn't be that.

Are you treating with maracyn because that stuff smells WRONG. I wouldn't think too much of it if your water stats are fine.
