weird eye????
« on: July 31, 2011, 10:28:03 AM »

Okay so Mr. Bubbles is perfectly healthy! yayy! Now Goldy my smaller Oranda, which i'm beginning to think is a mix of oranda with some other type of goldfish has a weird looking eye.  Sad Sad I just noticed this today. Goldy is orange and white. I have no idea what this is. The water is at its normal levels. I dunno maybe he's fine and I'm just hallucinating but just in case....

Here's the info
1. How big is your tank:  30 gal

2. For how long has the tank been set up: for over 2 years

3. How many fish: 9 fishes

4. What kind of fish: 2 oranda goldfish 5 neontetras 2 plecos

5. What are the water parameters:    Ammonia.........0 ppm
                                                            Nitrite..............0 ppm
                                                            Nitrate.............0 ppm
                                                            pH..........................6.8
                                                            Temp............75 degrees

6. How often do you perform water changes: every week

7. How big are your waterchanges:      25 - 50%

8. What kind of waterconditioner are you using: API Stress coat water conditioner

12. How is the normal behaviour of your fish: they're swimming around

13. How do the other fish behave: super peaceful

15. Do you have a filter on your tank, what kind, how big (gallons per hour). I have an Aquaclear power filter Model 50 Maximum Output: 200gph  Full Flow Control: 66gph

16. Do you provide extra aeration with an air pump and air stone/diffuser of some kind.
                I have a tetra air pump connected to a 12" inch stone

What's weird about the eye? Is it clearly protruding or is it strangely colored...?

It seems a little out, the other eye is fine and has the little orange around it because of his color but this eye doesnt have orange around it and seems out a little

Although I'm a newbie, I don't believe that anything is wrong with your fish. But if there is, it could possibly be pop eye.

Just to be safe, I'd feed him some medicated fish food with antbiotics, he might have an infection.
If you have a quarantine tank, you could try separating him and treating the water with something too.

I agree, to be safe, just some medicated food and watch it closely looks normal from the picture. I know it's hard to photograph fishies! Wink

sorry I've been gone for some time. He's actually fine..... yayyyy! I spent about 3 hours starring into the tank and if it would've been something I'm sure it would've affected his "abilities" per say. He's swimming normally, sees Everything, is always eating but most importantly sees everything lol  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

thank you so much though!!!!!!
