Black Moor eye OUT!
« on: March 24, 2011, 03:12:59 PM »

My baby Black Moor has lost one of his eyes. I think that a fish ate it b/c all the other fish was ok. I moved him and my other Black Moor out to a 10 gal tank. He is swimming around ok plus he's eating just fine. I did have a lot of stuff in the tank. I had a lot of ornaments in there so if another fish didn't attack him he may of got it put out by hitting up against something. The tank I have him in now he doesn't have to worry about that. Do you think he will be ok with just the one eye? He really looks scary looking cause he has a hole were his eye use to be. He does eat good and he swims around just fine. I'm very new to Freshwater fish including Goldfish but I really like this little fellow an would hate to lose him.

Okay you could put a bit of aquarium salt in the tank. How many fish are in the tank? If you can get a bigger tank the fish may stop attacking each other.

He'll be just perfect with one eye Smiley But like fantailer says, it might be a good idea to add some salt into the tank to avoid infection! If you want to you could also add some melafix or pimafix. They're good for preventing smaller infections but don't bother attempting to treat any existing problems with it!
