BettaBuddy ~ Miley
I have been on spring break and I thought it would be really cool if I could teach Oscar to jump and I did!! hes so cute! Miley
Wow, I didn't know Bettas are such acclaimed jumpers! LOL What's even more interesting, I didn't know you can actually teach a Betta to jump! How do you do that?
thank you all for your concern but I have a lid with no holes and he only jumps when I tell him and he ABSOLUTLEY refuses to jump if the lid isn't there. its so cute too!!! Miley
I haven't been on in forever! it has small holes all over it its a crittur keeper tank so its safe.. Miley
That's pooling blood in his eye, most likely caused from an internal injury. Another user on this site had this happen to her gold fish. He lost his eye but lived.
I would have no idea how to go about treating this. People seem to love throwing salt at everything I looked up relating to this but I don't think that would feel too good on his wound. I'm so sorry about your big guy and hopes he heals quickly.
Just keep the water as clean as possible and the fish as quiet as possible. Aside from that there isn't really anything to do but let nature take its course, I think. Is it by itself? If not, maybe it should be until it heals.What do I do if his eye falls out?

In that case you'll want to prepare a way to stop the bleeding in case it doesn't stop on its own.
Hopefully the bleeding stops because I don’t live anywhere near a fish vet. We only have like 3 (good) vets within a 100 mile radius of us, all only really do dogs and cats. Will it bleed a lot if the eye falls out (I would assume yes but never know)?Well the first thing to mind is cauterizing it, but that seems too hard and risky. Maybe just find a fish vet close to you so he can get taken care of there if it doesn't stop bleeding
Well I would love to assume that in the off chance it falls out he'll be fine and stopping bleeding, but I'm just thinking logically that if the bleed is from behind his eye there will be nothing to stop it. That said though, it could also just be some burst blood vessels inside his eye which would mean it's completely contained and will stop.
I think it should be ok, just wait until Delta is healed up first.
