    Pop eye normally goes away on its own after about 2 weeks.

    Unless you are brave enough to catch the fish out and stick a syringe needle in there to suck out the excess fluid.

    As far as I know, nobody are sure.

    Can be any of various reasons. It bumped itself? Got bacterial infection? Do not know the exact cause.

    But its a build up of excess fluids behind the eye.
