Eye Growth

Recommended Posts

Hello, my goldfish is 1 year old and I just did a full tank change.  Now I noticed white growth from one eye and maybe a little on the other eye.  What is it? what should I do? My first goldfish!!

2 fish in 10 gallon tank, 1 yr old weekly 20% water change.  Full water change, new gravel and fake plants added 1 week ago.  All levels on test strips in safe zone.  Flu chi tank and filter.  They eat flakes and pellets.  No other strange things except white thing in eye

You might find our Guidelines helpful :)

If you could fill out the form in the format it will really help the mods get everything in order, I know some things might seem irrelevant but they all really help :) 

Are you able to get a liquid test kit? We really need the numbers for Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate and the strips are often inaccurate unfortunately

If you can't copy and paste the form, just quote it.  Then put your answers after each question.  I recommend you read this post on how to fill out the form

Even without all the questions answered, I can tell you that you need to change much more water to keep your fish healthy.  I recommend changing 20% daily until we see the completed form.  

Why did you change the gravel?  How deep is it?  

Plastic plants can scratch eyes.
