For future reference, Maracyn is a trade name Mardel uses for Erythromycin and
Maracyn II is Minocycline, a very gentle acting antibiotic that I haven't found
very effective on advanced bacterial infections.

Pop eye is only a symptom of an internal bacterial infection and not a disease in
itself. If your fish is still eating, I'd recommend feeding it a medicated (for
bacterial infections) food. Otherwise I've had some limited success by combining
Naladixic Acid and Kanamycin Sulfate. Pop eye usually appears after the disease is
far advanced and difficult to treat.

Good luck,

Mike Wise
