    What else can I do for her please? I'm certain she is blind - the eye is horrific and looks dead, she is bumping into everything. I know it was caused by an injury because I saw the male attack her after she laid eggs in his bubble nest. I have isolated her in the guppy fry tank and she us happily eating and swimming around even though she bumps into the glass -,I have added melafix for 5 days and now on day 3 of Medica life care treatment - but I seriously dong know if she's in pain or what else I can do? I don't have another tank so have to consider my guppy fry she shares with. I have her babies successfully growing too - she suffered for them though!

    Make sure not to dose too much melafix, as their labyrinth organ is sensitive to too much melafix.

    Oh no? I put 5 ml into a 65litre tank each day. Hope that was ok!
