    My Regal Tang developed this eye problem a few days ago, what can I do about it?

    Hi Herkie - it's "popeye".... Leave the fish alone. Perhaps doze some iodine to the tank water. (Will act like a natural anti-biotic).... As long as the fish eats. Don't do anything.... Good luck mate!

    It does not seem to worry about the eye and the only difference I can see is that it keeps the good eye to my side when I take photos.

    Because it can see you better with the "good eye" ;-)

    It should be ok... be patient. Give it time.....

    What makes me sad is the fact that I always have to learn the hard way. Just gave the tank a good dose.

    He's probably bumped his eye against a rock or something, it will go away after a few days (week or two).
