    Hi King Squish -

    Don't worry about this. Fish sometimes hurt themselves. This will go away on it's own.

    most of the times it goes away. Got a Damsel that had a pop eye. At worst the fish can go blind or the eye can pop out. But the damsel came right by himself after about 2 weeks.

    Somebody did post a while back that they use a needle and syringe to suck pout the excess fluid from behind the eye and that helps a lot. But I cannot do that myself... Will be to afraid that the fish moves just at that moment and I then stick the needle either into the eye or through the head...

    Guys, there is an easier way.

    Pop eye occurs from two things
    An infection

    Antibiotic or Myzaxin

    Eye trauma

    Epsom salts work exceptionally well.
    Try and quarantine, the does 1 tablespoon for every 20L.
