I know this is in the wrong forum, but everybody seems to view and not help in Disease, Parasite, and Injury

Anywho....

I just noticed an eye injury on the alpha of my new baby RBs. I've had them a few weeks now and today noticed either a cloudy cover or scab over it's right eye. Send any opinions my way, thanks.

Melafix all the way, with a normal salt mix as well. I had one do the same thing a feww weeks ago, and it healed back in 2 days.

I had something similar on one of my RBPs once. I think it was because of a scratch he got in a fight. The eye is good now, fixed itself within few days.

I think you guys are right that it might be a bite, I noticed the second largest P has a nip on his lower lip. But I'm not 100% that it's a bite cause when I got a close up of him it doesnt look like there is any damage directly to the eye, just some sort of cover around it.

I took all advice. The obvious, I quarantined him in a hosp and I went out and got some melafix. Hopefully it clears in a couple days. thanks everybody.

BTW, possible fungus or no?

COULD be cloudy eye, but most likely just a battle wound.

If you can rule out acid and/or ammonia burn than most definately injury. Doesn't look bacterial but not the best of pic either. Hospital tank, salt healthy diet should do the trick. Pimafix/Melafix won't hurt. Topic moved.
