All other perameters are good. She is in a 75gal community tank and instead of stressing her by removing her to a hospital tank (I don't have one ready to use), I decided to dose the whole tank. Please send any advice you can.
**UPDATE** I am now wondering if she could be gravid. She looks just like a CL that another member posted of his female which he claimed was full of eggs, except that her eyes are protruding. She's getting fatter and fatter by the day. I know she's female because she has a shorter tail with a less pronounced "V" than her mate. Her mate is longer, more slender, and has a very pronounced "V" on the tail fin. Now I wonder if adding the medication was a good idea or not, but I still have to treat the eyes. They're cloudy and protruding/bulging.
Here are some changes lately...I have been changing the water weekly, no salt in the water. I fed blood worms as a treat just about a week ago and they went nuts over them. I have noticed that the two large clowns (who have been together for 10 years) have been battling a lot lately. The male has been very aggressive towards the female. He chases her and pesters her more than he ever did. In the 10 years I've had these CL's this is the first time I've seen her belly swell like this. She is very hungry and goes after all the food that I put in the tank.
Does any of this info help?
Also, just a side note: you said the clown was 10+ years old --- what size is it? IME, 10+ year old clowns are 8"+ -- IMHO a fish that size should really be in a tank at least 6 feet long.
