ahhhhh.. Looks like the eyes are going to pop out!!

Help. I just now walked over to the tank to sy goodnight to the fishies.. and one of my swordtails eyes look like big ol' bubbles. Almost like they could just pop! What the heck is this and what do I do? Is this going to effect the rest of the fish in my tank?? HELP!!! 8O

It's probably Corneybacteriosis or commonly known as Bulging eyes
Penicillin and tetracycline help cure Corneybacteriosis.
Corneybacteria causes swelling in the head which will push the eyes outward. It is caused by overcrowding and water of poor quality, having an excess of ammonia and / or nitrites.

Well, he didn't make it. Such a weird thing. He was fine then all of a sudden .. buldging eyes. The next morning he was belly-up .. What a bummer. I just hate when I don't really know the reason why this happened. In case it was poor water quality, I changed the water (like 25-30%) and everyone else seems okay. Thanks for the reply.. I will just have to keep my fingers crossed that the rest of the fishies do not end up like this.
