    Default Cloudy eye silver dollar

    Can anybody help me here...mine Silver Dollar is suffering from cloudy eye (right eye) for the past 4days and doesn't eat anything (well hasn't eaten anything in the 4 days). Also, it swims and bumps into the glass, and doesn't really respond when I am in front of the tank. I have 5 Dollar's (2-3inches of size) with him in the tank and the tank capacity is 50litres.

    I have done below treatment for the past 4days but not got much improvement -

    1. Added saltwater along with one Terramycin 250mg.
    2. Changed water by 40-50%

    Please suggest ASAP my Dollar is in very bad shape.

    Knowing Your Levels of Ammonia, nitrite and nitrate in the water would really help. As of now, continue changing 50% water daily. The antibiotic would be useful, but since you have to change so much water every day it probably isn't worth adding. The underlying issue here is likely overstocking and the resulting poor water quality. Most species of silver dollars will grow to 12+ cm in diameter and require tanks of 200 liters or more.
