    What medicine or treatment would you suggest if your betta fish has semi cloudy eyes?

    Hello Elusivemuffin. In most cases cloudy eye has to do with water quality issues. Can you post your readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate? I think pristine water conditions are going to be your best bet at this point.
    Best wishes!

    I agree with ken..partial daily water changes with some prime will do wonders...more natural meds like vita chem, fish protector, and adding fresh garlic juice to his food, will help more than medicating...

    I did a 25-50% water change right after I saw it in his ten gallon which i usually do every friday.
    ph: 7.2
    ammonia: 0
    nitrite: 0
    nitrate: 5
    Temperature: Always 78F.

    I took the carbon filter out and added prazipro to his tank because I saw that he had stringy poop which is a possible indication he might have internal parasites. I'm supposed to wait 5 days with one treatment.

    I also notice this cottony stuff hanging from him. Do you think this is bacterial or fungal?

    I am not experienced in the field if disease, but I would think fungal.
