I have a female diamond tetra that got popeye in just one eye and has no other issues - assuming it was due to a physical injury because it appeared after trying to catch her and she ran into some things. None of the other fish with her got sick. It’s been almost 2 months and nothing is working. The first time I treated with kanaplex and salt it seemed to go away so I moved her back to the main tank then it came back. She has been in a hospital tank for about 2 weeks and received another round of kanaplex with no change. Now she is done with a round of treatment with Furan-2 and salt and still no change. The more she is alone the less active she becomes so I moved a quarantine tank with new fish next to her tank which helped perk her up but I don’t want to keep her isolated if I don’t need to. What else can I do for her?

Thank you! If she isn’t contagious and will heal eventually I’d rather put her back with her friends.
