Postby CICHLIDSINMICHIGAN » Mon Jun 27, 2011 11:28 pm

As long as there are no other symptoms, increase the frequency of your water changes to keep the water clean which will lower chances of infection (assuming it's not an infection causing the swelling) and will aid in healing. If it continues to swell or becomes cloudy, you will want to medicate with an antibacterial such as Maracyn 2.
