    Why are Some IT Eyes "Iced"?

    Saw some ITs eyes are iced, according to the owner. Is it normal or are there some illness in the IT internally?

    Think it's mainly due to poor water conditions as bio load is usually high keeping ITs........

    it depend on how serious the "ICE" is. Those mild ICE is just like a layer of blur film over their vision. Just like us need to wear spec if not vision will be blur. those very serious ICE is when the eye ball is totally white like those "steam fish" that is when the fish is not able to see. Hope my information is right hahaha....

    Why will you want to buy a tiger with defects as there are many to choose from in the market now?

    Take forum info with a pinch of salt, best is to try out yourself.

    It is not recommended to take in tigers with ICE as you have no idea how long the tiger has had it and if you are capable to cure it..........
