HELP!!! Cloudy infected eye on Sailfin Tang


New member
Just came home tonight after being away for a few days and my Sailfin Tang has a left only infected eye. White mucas like around it. Still eating vigorously.

Is there anyway to treat this or make it better?

Pull it and put into QT. You can treat with Erythromycin From API.

Good luck. Sorry to hear about the eye.

My 6" yellow tang has one eye just like this right now. It is eating well garlic soaked food. Also adding in vitamin C to the food and tank water. It seems to be healthy so I am in hopes it will kick this whatever it is.

How is your sailfin doing?


Just Keep Swimming
Ya look into pop eye for anyone experiencing this issue with one of their fish. Usually cased by an irritation from a scratch or something like that.
