I stopped using maracyn for one day before adding metro, I don't know how to specifically 'remove' maracyn tho.
Ok, I will stop adding bacteria.
Did you remove the Maracyn from the water before adding metroplex? Do you suspect ich, velvet or hole in head?

I see them three days ago around the eyes, looks like ichs. I changed water multiple times and added salt, the parasites diappeared and never showed up again.
today the fish's eye didn't get bigger, and it is more active than yesterday (I am not sure if it is a good sign or just coincidence). I tried to feed it some food covered with metroplex, but it seems to be too blind to see it. However, when I used my hand to push the food towards it, my fish escapes very fast. then I spent half an hour to clean the food remains..

Thanks

For next time you use carbon to remove medications.

Thanks, will do next time. What's the harm of combining those medicine together?

I finanlly brought the water to an acceptable condition. Now both ammonia and nitrate are 0, and nitrate is at around 20ppm. I will keep monitoring it.

Unless you have a recommendation from the manufacturer to combine the medications, it is safer not to mix.

I retested it today before changing water, the condition is same as yesterday (0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, <20 nitrate). I guess it's because the fish didn't eat and didn't produce much waste.
However the eye just doesn't shrink, in effect there are more fluids behind right eyeball, now there is some small convex around the swollen eye and made it look even bigger.

This picture may make people uncomfortable. So currently there are new bloated parts around the eyes, and we can see little blood dots on the most bloated areas.
He is lying on the graval bed all day, the water quality is getting better every day but his situation is not getting better. He hasn't eaten anything for three days either

He may have been too far gone when you started. Unless someone else has an idea, I might double dose with metronidazole for three days.

I will give it another try. Just double dosed it.
No matter what happens, thank you so much for following up with me and answer all my dumb questions. I wish I knew everything earlier.

I am heartbroken to report that he didn't make it. His situation went worse every day, today i decided to euthanase him with clove oil. He fell asleep quickly and stopped suffering.
Thanks for your help. I would do more research before I restart another aquarium, I hope he rest in peace.
