  • eye sticking out

    I just noticed that one of my cory has one of its eyes sticking out o.o what causes that? Can it be fixed?

    could be bacterial or it could be the water conditions, the disease is called pop eye and there are some ways to work with it once you determine the cause.

      Hm I changed the water the day before I brought them home. Then I added an extra bottle of TSS when I added them. The other cory and goldies seem just fine.

        It dose sound like Popeye. Like said its usually caused by environmental conditions. They eye gets filled up with fluid and that's why it bulges. Bacterial infection may also be present. I believe improving water conditions heals it up but takes time as the swelling dose other damage. Being too that it's only one eye it could be from an injury. Super clean water is the best course of action.

          Alright the way they chase each other around I wouldn't be surprised if he bumped his eye on something. These little guys are crazy xD

          I just checked on him and now both eyes are sticking out

            could be bacterial or water conditions then, if the parameters in the tank are ok I would begin a bacterial treatment for him

                Alright I have extra maracyn on hand

                I had to put the cory into a bucket because Tipsy kept pecking at it's eye and was bothering it.

                      Sorry to hear, hopefully it will be an isolated incident and things will be fine in the main tank.

                        I'm keeping an eye on everything. I did two water changes on the 20g today waiting 2 hours in between
