    One of my Black Widow tetra has developed a white spot on its eye. The eye is also enlarged, but only within the retina... I realy dont think this is pop-eye because it doesnt look like any of the pictures Ive seen of pop-eye.
    Can anyone help with this

    It keeps going cloudy and then returning to a clear retina with a white dot in the centre. The fish still has all of its colours, so I know it isnt ill. I have anti bacterial solutions, so I'll try these. Is it pop-eye though?

    Dont know if its pop eye unless its potruding from the head otherwise its probably just a baterial/fungal infection of cloudy eyes from what Ive read
