Clarkii with one pop eye

I have a clarkii clown and 2 damsels. A few days ago all of a sudden the clarkii will not go anywhere near the damsels, now one of his eyes is swollen. I did a 20% water change in the hopes that his eye will heal can I use epson salts to help him bearing in mind I also have a peppermint shrimp?

I will definetly try the epsom salt. The thing is too he has now resorted to swimming at night in the dark.

Most fish will sleep/rest at night, so it probably feels safest to come out at this time if it was being picked on.

Frequent PWC`s will help also. How often are you doing PWC`s?

I treated my tank with melafix and the pop eye has now gone in 4 days. The clarkii is swimming more but he's not his usual self yet , is there anything else I can do to make him fully better?
