Most AC Senior members know i own an Albino Oscar named Finn which is in my avatar and most Senior members know he only has one eye.

Well i don't know how it happened but overnight his other eye got covered in a white fuz and he has now lost his only good eye and is blind, i think a cockroach which my dad had sprayed to kill may have fallen into Finns tank but now he is blind and i dunno what to do :(

I love Finn ive had him for nearly 5 years :'(

This is really sad. If his eye is covered in flime it most likely is a fungus. I certainly would try my best to treat it and save what sight he has left. He won't even be able to see the food you drop in his tank. Poor thing and I know you feel bad and love this fish.

He seems to be in a bit of confusion smakcin into the sides of the tank i dont think he has any sight left at all :( its horrible his eye poped out a little then grew a fungus and now the fungus has mostly cleared but his eye is really red and his fins had rotted a bit

I'm so sorry. Have you tested your water? Maybe something got messed up there. Maybe a big water change will help and then add some Metafix?

Poor guy and poor you.

Finn passed away early this morning, the "disease" or whatever it was got the better of him
