My poor Betta, Manuel, has developed a terrible case of Popeye!!! Overnight his eye appeared swollen, then four days later it is still swollen but looks like a gory bloody mess!!! The whole side of his face is swollen now including the top of his head. He didn’t eat for two days and just the other day he managed to eat three pellets. It’s been another two days since he’s eaten, and hI just sits in his floating log. When he sees me with his good eye, he does swim away still, but he’s obviously very weak. I’ve had him for six years, going on seven, and he’s the most stubborn Betta fish I’ve ever owned. He’s tough and has the most intense will to live that I’ve seen in any other creature. I’ve been giving him Melafix everyday as well as these lifeguard dissolving pills, I put aquarium salt in, and he has a heater, and is in a 1 gallon bowl. I’m pretty sure he’s just so old he can’t fight off this infection, And now he’s just lingering and slowly getting worse Anything more I can do???? If the infection spreads to his other eye I’m taking him to the vet to be put down.
