Oh yeah, she has popeye. Nothing to worry about as you can cure it. A few questions to ask. How big is her tank? Is it heated? Is it filtered? Is it cycled? Do you know your parameters? This can be treated with Kanaplex, but more information about her environment will help determine a possible cause.

It’s looks like a bad case of pop eye. Give me a sec to type treatment

1. You need a 5 gallon filtered heated and cycled tank.
2. Treat the tank with kanaplex
3. Feed her live, frozen or freeze dried brine shrimp or if you can’t find that bloodworms
4.NO tank mates

She’s in a 2.5 Gallon tank that’s filtered I don’t have a heater but I have a thermometer in the tank that I constantly check, and I don’t know the parameters of her tank.

I thought she had Popeye and I googled what to use to cure it and I got mela fix and put her in a separate tank and started treating her for it.

It does look like Popeye. Does the hospital tank have a filter?
She may be constipated, in which case, fast her for 3 days before attempting to feed her a quarter of a de-shelled thawed pea. Or, she may just be feeling ill and doesn't want to eat, in which case, don't stress too much. Betta's can go for a fortnight without food.

The hospital tank doesn’t have a filter just because I went out and bought the biggest tank I could find at my pet store but they only had like a bowl type tank with no filter I’ve been giving her Melafix then changing her water once it begins to cloud. I’ve noticed that her eye has went down in size a bit it’s just the fact that she was t eating was making me stress.

I would not recommend melafix! It has tea tree oil, which costs the labyrinth organ and makes it very hard to breathe!!! Can you get kanaplex??

Please stop the melafix. If you have plain epsom salt give her a bath. 1 tablespoon/gallon of dechlorinated water. Mix it completely. Pour some into small container. Make sure temp is the same as the tank. Leave her in bathe ten minutes.

Do you have a dechlorinator or are you on well water?

The kanaplex you’ll use in the main tank. You’ll also need to get your water tested.
