    hey there. my dorry was fine untill tonight.
    when i fed him i saw that his one eye was swolen and looks like it is popping out.
    could this be some or other disease or is it a common thing?
    could the foxface maybe have stung him in his eye?
    any help would be appreciated

    I left mine alone and all was well after a few weeks. Mine happened after a power failure

    This does indeed go away after a while. Don't stress the fish up by trying to give it any dips.....

    Same Happened To Mine, Most Likely Scratched Its Eye Against A Rock, Should Go Away In A Day Or Two

    Martin,

    I wouldn't worry about it too much.
    It is not due to something you have done.
    More than likely the Tang has bumped against something .
    The swelling is due to fluid buildup and it is also possible that there is a small infection in the eye , due to the injury.

    Just keep an eye ( pardon the pun) on the Tang.
