Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in fish. I'm sorry to hear of this problem. Some additional information will be useful?
How many fish, and what kinds, have bulging eyes?
Have you tested the water? If yes, what numbers in parts per million (ppm) did you get for ammonia and nitrites?
Have you tried any treatments yet?
Thank you.
Anna

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
