    Hi ladies and gents.

    Got home just now and saw my regals' one eye's milky and slightly swolen. I'm not sure if it's pop-eye or something? I won't be too amazed if the guy hurt himself exploring. He likes going where no fish has gone before.

    But on a serious note. He's still very active, eating like a pig and got his colour.
    This is the best shot I managed to get of his eye. (Had to use the flash so everything's a bit bright. I've got virtually no experience with fish illness so any advise will be much appreciated.
    I've had him for a couple of months now.

    Anyone at all ?
    I couldn't take a look at him this morning. The lights was still off and he was dossing in his hiding spot.

    I dont hink its anything serious. Just carry on with your daily maintanance and dont stress him out like putting your hands inside the tank. Is it one or both eyes like that?

    It's just his one eye. Most of the milky appearance and the swelling have subsided and he's going on as usual.
