Baby YBS sick?
I have had my baby YBS for about a week. A couple days after bringing it home I noticed it's left eye not opening all the way. Then I noticed it swelling, then it was swollen and wouldn't open at all. I got some ZooMed turtle eye drops, and I've been using a drop a day, and the eye does not appear to be swollen, however it still is not opening it. Over the course of this time it has stopped eating, appears to always be asleep, and when it does swim it is only for a minute and it goes completely still again. It does not appear to be a RI, as I see no bubbles from the nose or mouth, I see no mucus, it does not gasp for air, etc. What could be wrong?
I have a 10 gallon tank- Turtle is only 1-1.5 inches.
I have UV and Basking light
Water temp is 79degrees
Basking area is 90 degrees
Filter that is constantly running
Basking spot out of the water-easy to access
Clean tank/ Clean water
I have a thermometer
I use a water heater
There is very little activity in the room it's tank is in.
The tank is by a window- closed curtain, no drafts
