Last night I noticed that my Coral Beauty Angel Fish has one eye that is swollen and looks as if it is going to pop out. It is cloudy and looks like a cloudy white slime is over it.

I did a 5 gal WC last night. It seems that it wouldn't be Popeye because it is only one eye.

I just got home from work and dosed my DT with epsom 5tbsp salt following the formula 1tbsp to 10 gallon.

Last night I ordered API's FURAN-2 and Seachem's Kanaplex and GarlicGaurd (as it's recommended to stack the food together in both) and should arrive tomorrow.

Can I dose my DT with FURAN-2 and soak the food in Kanaplex without damaging the rest of my reef tank and it being ok for the other fish/corals? Or should I set up my 5gal QT and move my Coral Beauty into it and dose the FURAN-2 and feed it the food in there?

Tank Specs:
25g.
2 Clowns
1 Clown Goby
1 Six Line Wrasse
1 Coral Beauty
4 Turbos
3 Nassarius Snails
Current Corals: Zoas, Montis, Green stars, hammers, leptos, and a dendron.

I would not dose Furan-2 in DT as it will tint the water yellow. This medication should be used in a QT only. You also need the binder for Kanaplex which is Focus to bind it to the food you will be feeding. Popeye could be an indication of flukes on the eye. I would do a FW dip to rule this out.

I did the dip then put her in QT. I dif 4 days of FURAN-2 and did 25% WCs, waited a day then dosed Kanaplex to the tank. Its day two of the first dose and I came home to find her vertical and bobbing up and down. She is moving but won't go horizontal. While her eyes look better, she seems to get worse. Any ideas?
