    Thumbs down Something wrong with my black moor's eyes


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi, I am just wondering if anyone can help me please? My black moor's eyes have stuff growing over them. Not sure what is happening. It is not eating which is concerning me too. This is only my second moor & the first one didn't have anything like this happen. Someone has suggested a teaspoon of salt in the water to clear the eyes.

    Could be something called cloud eye. It's a bacterial condition caused generally from not having water clean enough. Do large water changes and keep that water very clean and start using some Melafix and Pimafix. They can be used together. It should clear up easily.

    If it's both eyes it may be the cloud eye but if only one eye, possibly he injured it.

    What size tank do you have your moor in and what filtration have you?

    Hi, thanks for your help. It is both eyes. My tank size is 77cmX31cmX40cm & I change half the water every 2-3 weeks. I have 2 small filters running in the tank as well.

    I do believe that tank is too small for a black moore. You need enough filtrations for double the size of the tank, you need to change the water once a week, not once ever two or three weeks and what are your readings on ammonia, nitrite and nitrates?

    Eh...if the dimensions are right, it's right between a 20 and a 29 gallon. A 29 gallon would be all right for two fancy's--not ideal since moors get bigger than some of the others, but all right, especially if they're youngsters. 40cm is around 15 inches, which would put it at around 25 gallons (12" high would be a 20 gallon, and 18" would be a 29 gallon). However, small filters probably means the filters aren't big enough for having goldfish in there, since you're already pushing it on size.

    Did you cycle the tank before putting the goldfish in, and do you have test reagents? More than likely, your ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates are high from inadequate filtration and not frequent enough water changes, the causing bacterial infection in the eyes Lady H mentioned. If you don't have one, get a test kit (API is highly recommended. Strips are not since they lie more than they tell the truth), test your water, and see what's going on.
