    Default betta popeye !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HELP


    0 Not allowed!
    today i noticed my betta has 2 huge eyes. i think it is pop eye
    i performed a 50 percent water change yesterday.
    he is in a 10 gallon tank, all by him self.
    the temperature in his tank is at 24. this is quite low, i adjusted the filter to low because yesterday it was hot, then i forgot to turn it back up.
    also yesterday when i poured water into the tank, it lifted some poop of the gravel. could those 2 have caused it.
    i read that he may lose an eye. does this mean it will pop our or he will go blind.
    it's weird though. how come both eyes?
    what should i do. any medication. water change?
    please help. URGENT
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    High temperatures+ some salt+ really clean water would be worth trying. Make sure that you vacuum the gravel thoroughly in the tank to ensure no buildup of waste.

    ammonia:0
    nitrite:0
    nitrate:20-30
    nitrate is high for some reason.
    probably yesterday nitrate was at 50.
    that probably caused it.
    i have no idea why it is so high.
    i turned up the heater.
    i will do a water change.
    one problem is i can't vacuum my gravel very well because the tank is low and i don't get much suction.

    That's too bad. Have you ever heard of that gravel vacuum thing eheim made that works like a gravel vacuum but traps the gunk in a mesh and releases water back into the tank?

    If there is no other way to control waste and nitrate buildup in the gravel, it might be a consideration. Make sure to get the nitrate as low as possible. 20-30 ppm still is a bit high.

    Good luck!
