Both. In street terms he needs a cold steak over the eye and some small bandaids to close up the lip.

Unless the camera angle is wrong, I believe he got popeye from the fighting. Sometimes fish get it from being netted too roughly and get a scratch on their eye. If the aggressive fish is leaving a fish with popeye alone and the injured fish is continuing to eat, I usually recommend leaving the injured fish where they are.

ReefRunner----you have become one heck of a photographer. I'm sure your blenny is going to be just fine.

Just an update.

The eye is back to normal and the lips are on the mend. Looks like she's gonna be fine. The agression has finally subsided in the last day. FWIW, the hawk was never the aggressor, even after that damage the blenny still continued to harrass the hawk. The hawk defended itself, something the blenny was apparently not used to. The blenny's fins have suffered a little, but everything seems ok now.

Will try to get a pic later tonight or tomorrow.

Yah platinum it looks like his face was tore up from the floor up, pieces of lips missing, eye swollen up with the bubble on it.

He got torched. wow

Controversely, when my tang was in the 55, my sailfin blenny would attack his tail and bite pieces off of it... moved the tang to wife's tank so his tail could grow back. (it grew back).

Glad to see that the blenny is looking better now! The first pic had me worried. How are the blenny and the flame hawk getting along now?
