View Full Version : Black moore + lopsided eyeballs

11-06-2008, 04:29 AM
One of my black moore's has always had unevenly sized eyeballs ever since he/she was a baby, but today the difference is MASSIVE in the one previousley mis-sized eyeball.


In light of this being a preexisting condition, is there still grounds to be concerned?

I would appreciate any ideas,

looks like popeye. what size tank do you have? how are the water levels?

Do you have any sharp objects in the tank?

I tested the water and everything is within the 'normal range' except the water is hard. Would that matter?

I can't imagine anything in the tank is sharp enough to hurt him. I DID move a big fake aquarium plant in there and it has plastic stems that poke out where the leaves are missing. Maybe I'll cut them off. Has anyone ever had problems with fake plants and black moore's hurting themselves?

hard water wouldnt matter, likely since its one eye he bumped it

He is pretty clumsy. Clumsy but cute! thumbs2:
Should I put him in his own separate tank until his eye looks better?

if you could it would be a good idea, add some aquarium salt too to help heal the eye
