I have several tanks.

But the one I am talking about now is a 55 gallon with 4 red belly piranhas in it. Their all about 3 inches long. One of the fishes eye is cloudy like. This has been gonig on for at least 3 weeks now. there use to be a lot of protein build up, but carbon wiped that up. I am thinking it could be ammonia burn also. But I examined it more and it looks like a wound now kinda. I have treated it with tetracycline tons of times doesn't seem to work that great. I don't have a hospital tank so i'm not sure if putting in salt would hurt the fellow piranhas or not. The ammonia is a fracture alittle over, but I am fixing that with carbon and ammo lock now.water temp 79, good.Ph is neutral., etc. Everything is pretty good. Should I trade this piranha in for another one... If its uncurable that is, I cant tell if its a wound or a infection.... And I cant post pics im sorry. no digi cam.

Please post suggestions

It very much could be a wound. Put a little salt and wait.

do a water change every 3 days, and add 1 tablespoon of aqurium salt per 5 gallons of water and it should clear up in no time.

Aquarium salt will do fine!
