    so little pez has popeye, this is my first time with a fish with this so what do i need to do. I already did a 50percent water change and he is still eating good. he is in a 10 gallon with divider with another betta. he is fine.

    I'm sorry about your betta :(
    What are the water paramters (before the water change?)
    Pop eye can be from poor water conditions, an injury or even an infection.
    Pop-Eye

    Good luck, I hope he feels better.

    well this is very odd....i did water change other day when i noticed it, but just checked the parameters again. the nitrite is .50! and the nitrate is .10 and ammnia is 0.. how can i have nitrite reading??? the tank is about 6months old. it cycled. this is odd... I am doing another water change now.

    Hopefully a few daily water changes will get your cycle back and your betta will be feeling better.
    Keep us posted.
