So I googl'd this problem, came out to be "popeye" ,

So I guess i'm going to transfer him to the QT and add treatment,

"Maracyn Plus" ??

Any info will be a plus !

Usually with good water quality, the popeye will go away on its own.

Make sure you are keeping up with your PWCs and soak your food in selcon before feeding. Its usually an environmental factor. Is anything harassing it?

Seems that one of the other Perc's Bully's him around, so the Popeye Perc, just hangs around the top of the corner tank next to the pumps.

I do a 20% PWC's every Thursday! I'll try this "selcon" next time also ...
