    will it be ok?

    Post by jp80911 on Mon 23 Mar 2009, 22:12

    Just put my 4" blue diamond rhom in my new 75g setup two days agao and yesterday I noticed there's some white spot on one of his eyes. any idea what it might be? did he hurt himself?

    added salt last night after I notcied the white spot and it seems to be better today, but that could be just me seeing things.

    Here are some pics of his eye, all taken last night.




    Here's a full tank shot

    Hi,


    I think you have some sort of a bacterial infection there. I am not positive about it but my reds did the same exact thing in my tank. I used melafix and it cleared it up. what are your amonia and nitrite levels in that tank? and very nice fish/tank you have there. I am not sure maybe someone like Maniac or Cam can chime in with a better answer and solution for your problem.

    water parameter should be good. filter media in the FX5 are from an established tank.
    didn't get to see the fish this morning will see how the eye is tonight. hope it's getting better. my main concern is that I don't want that eye to go blind.

    Please post your params,..used media will help a new tank
    cycle, but beneficial bacteria still needs to grow to take
    care of ammonia,..his eye could be from ammonia burn, bacterial infection as Shaun stated, or depleted oxygen
    levels in the water,..btw,..thats a d*mn nice setup you
    have there affraid ,...get your #s posted and we'll go
    from there,..

    ammonia = 0 ppm
    nitrite = 0.05ppm (the solution color is kind of between this and 0 ppm)
    nitrate = unknown because I just realized that my test kit does not have nitrate test agent...I must be asleep when I was buying that last year.
    pH = 7.8 (tested my tap water as well and it's between 7 and 7.4??) same thing happened to my other tank but over time the pH level came back normal and I have no idea why. Did add two Indian Almond Catappa Leaf to help bring the pH down. I guess over time the driftwood I have in the tank will take care the problem.

    Hey jp80911,

    My (Possible)Gold Spilo had pretty much the same thing about a year ago..i used melafix and it stopped it but his left eye has always had one of the spots since...it never went away.

    I'm not sure if it's the same thing as my guy had but here is a pic to compare...

    the white mark was disappearing slowly, I could still see a hint of it. you may hate for me this but I trade it in for a 6" blue diamond from Aquascape.

    first two pics were taken when I just got him and put him in the tank.





    pic taken the second day, just one night the eyes have turned blood red already. settling nicely.


    hope soon the color will start to show slowly.

    he's eating alright, already killed two 5"ish oscars and ate more than half of each fish in less than 1 week. once I finish all the oscar I'll start convert it to feeding prepared food. just want get him fat and heal all the fins first.
