Popeye Getting Worse? Help

  1. SpookaSpooka Member Member

    2 gallon heated and filtered quarantine tank. Waterchanging every other day. I decided to make a thread specifically for her popeye. I adopted her because the pet store was going to try and treat her Popeye (and possibly dropsy?) With bettafix and I knew I could do better with a little research (and the help of the forum) because I have a whole first aid kit of meds. Two days ago I started her on Kanaplex for the dropsy and the Popeye, but her eye has only been getting worse. Her bloating has stayed the same, though she's possibly a little less prickly today (it's hard to tell because her scales are a gray with a black outline). So, for the bloating and Popeye, I'm going to try an Epsom salt bath and keep her on the kanaplex. However, I can't seem to find a consensus on what dosage of Epsom salt to use. Input?

    Here's a picture of her eye yesterday, it's only gotten worse:

    Can you take a clear photo?

    I'll try, she's just not very cooperative.

    Better to have it zoomed out and clear (you can do things like cropping and blowing it up to increase size) than a blurry closeup ;)
