Hello there, the other day i noticed one of my fish had developed pop eye over night, I quickly quarantined him in a 60 litre storage container and immediately started feeding him seachem metronidazole mixed with brine shrimp as a medicated food. The following day he started looking prickly, definitely the beginnings of pine coning. A few days on his eyes are back to normal and there is 0 signs of pineconing, my question is do I continue to feed the medicated food for a while longer to be sure? I've been feeding it once daily since Saturday, today is wednesday.

Also the storage container is getting water changes daily of 50% it's got my cycled aquaball from the big tank in it.

Please continue the treatment for a full week.  We usually recommend a longer treatment, but I want to determine why.
