|Black Ruby Barb, eye popping out|
I plan to segregate her to my cycled 10g. I am in the process of moving the three fish that are in the 10g to other tanks so I can start the 10g over. So, this comes at about as convenient a time as something like this can. For now the 10g will have to suffice as a hospital tank.
The parameters in the 55g (and all my tanks) are:
Nitrates: 20-30 ppm
What's the best treatment for the eye pop?

Well, I will respond to me own call for help lol
I moved Ms Black Ruby Barb to her own digs, in my now empty 10g.
I've begun to medicate with a cocktail of Melafix and Pimafix, along with a powdered general fungal medication. I hope I can save her. I'll let y'all know!

Popeye is kinda hard to nail down. It's a viral infection that sometimes will respond to pimafix and melafix. Sometimes, it will go away on it's own. But you did a good thing by moving her to a hospital tank.

Near enough is not good enough, therefore good enough is not near enough, and only your best will do.

This morning I began dosing a regular fungal med: Victoria Green/Acriflavine along with Melafix. I read on that site you sent me Keith that it's probably bacterial. So, can I also dose an anti bacterial such as Nitrofurazone/Furazolidone along with the Fungus meds? I didnt see any warnings not to.

Well nevermind, she's gone... I guess I didn't get to her in time. Bums me out!

I'm sorry for your loss, Scott. Having lost 6 fish myself a few weeks ago, I know your pain. I miss my betta most of all.

Yea, it's a bummer to be sure! Now, my 10g is empty so I will rid it of snails, do a total cleaning and start it over from scratch...
I think I will set it up as a quarantine tank for future tankmates of my two larger tanks. I may just keep a shoal of danios or pristella tetras in there for their hardniess and simple beauty (and of course, to keep the tank cycled).
I still hate not being able to save sick fish. I've never had any success with that, other than wiping out Ich.
