    I wouldn't subscribe to this point of view. Bettas naturally evolved to live in much harder environments than 50 ppm + aggressive redox, low oxygen, etc. 20-30 ppm is a dream for many fresh water tanks. I suggest that TS make a more accurate analysis of what is happening there in his tank and look for other reason of poped eyes.

    I would recommend a lot of extra water changes for the next week or two, something a long the lines of 50% every second day. Lots of fresh clean water always helps fish heal up faster. A good bacterial treatment will also help. As pop eye is most commonly caused by poor water conditions over a long period of time, you might want to look at your maintenance routine and weekly water change amount.

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    What exactly do you use for your water changes? How are you not able to get good suction? It's really important to be able to clean the bottom of your tank.

    It's true, bettas have evolved to tolerate such harsh conditions, but that only applies to the short period called dry season. In the rest of the year, they live like any other tropical fish. Therefore, keeping them under such conditions is not ideal and especially not with one that is attempting to heal.

    Today I woke up to a perfectly normal Betta. A miracle.
    I will continue to do what water changes for 2 more days
    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!

    How is he doing vafa? Hope he's still doing well.

    He probably just really had to poop. LOL.
    1 - 55 gallon planted community
    3 - 10 to 20 gallon planted betta tanks
    My advice: slow down, think, and be willing to learn. Then you'll be fine, no matter what.
