Re: Figure eight puffer has a cloudy eye

Since they've had ich I've been doing 5 gal changes every 2-3 days, so like 4 over the last week and a half. Before ich, i did them every other week or so. I always thought that tank cycling was like a one time thing. Once the bacteria have colonized the filter, is there any reason that they would d...

Re: Figure eight puffer has a cloudy eye

Okay, dosing the tank sounds good. I think I'll do a 25% water change with dosed RO water tonight, then if he doesn't show improvement by tomorrow morning I'll try to put a drop in his eye directly. Thank you! Side note, i checked my tap water for ammonia as a calibration check, and it read exactly ...

Re: Figure eight puffer has a cloudy eye

The cloudy eye got worse today. I'm thinking I'm going to pull him out into a hospital tank and dose with melafix. Hopefully someone can confirm soon but if no one replies that's what I'll do.

Re: Figure eight puffer has a cloudy eye

The ich appears to be almost better, and most sources I found online suggested raising heat with plenty of oxidation. It seems to have worked. I'm not really asking about the ich, though I appreciate your suggestions, I'm more worried about the cloudy eye. The tank has been established for years, pr...

Figure eight puffer has a cloudy eye

Hey everyone. I have two figure eight puffers in a 20 gallon tank, and one of them has something over his eye, like a cloudy film. Seems like he's trying to scratch it off on things in the tank. Both of them are just getting over a bout of ich, which they've had for a week and a half or so. I've bee...

Re: New Amazon Puffer - skimming glass and won’’t eat :/

Hey! I'm having a similar issue. I got two F8 puffers about two weeks ago, and one of them is obsessed with pacing the glass. When I first put them in they were both active and friendly, but he has since started to incessantly pace the glass. I also have a 20 gal long, with lots of plants, driftwood...
