Default Help White Eye Problem!

Hey everyone.

Thanks in advance for all your responses. One of my Mikula's has white eye on only one's its eyes. I don't what caused it. I just checked my water conditions. The only thing wrong with my water is the the Nirates are a bit high. Im doing a water change.

Please help!

Cloudy eye is usually caused by poor water quality. I would do a 50% water change now, then another 50% in a couple days. I would also increase the frequency of your water changes to at least 25% per weak and maybe a 50% one week per month. jmo

It looks like it's been cloudy for awhile. The longer it's cloudy the worse it gets. I've seen them worse but yours are getting pretty bad. Water changes will help alot, maybe add a little aquarium salt as well. It will take a few days to see improvement. Actually, I'd step up the water changes even more then I said until her/his eyes clear out, the more-the better. It should be ok though, just keep up the water changes.
EDIT: I thought it was on both eyes. It could just be a scuff but either way, the water changes will be good for them and help the eye heal quicker.

He may have also ran into something. What type of rocks do you have in your tank?

My guess is he/she ran into one of the rocks. Maybe he/she got chased or spooked. Clean water and aquarium salt should help. If it's too bad, chances are he/she will be blind.

Yes, that can happen if it's too bad or left untreated too long.

Razzo had an eye injury to one of his mikulas. I tried to find the post but was unsuccessful. His turned out ok.
