Foxface - Eye puffy

Overnight, my Foxface has developed an issue with one of the eyes. It almost looks like it's a large contact lens over his eye. He's active and eating. Coloring looks good.

Have not seen anything else in the tank picking at him

Any idea what this is and if it can be treated?

Here is his eye on the other side that looks normal

That is what it appears to be. And it appears to be an injury since its just one eye.

Yeah I'm not sure you can do much for Popeye other than keep an eye out for changes ( no pun intended). My blue regal had it and it subsided after a couple of days, just watch it carefully. Although there may be some type of medication you can purchase I just kept an eye out on it.
