Swollen eye

Hi guys one my fish got a swollen eye, I just came home from work and notice fish sitting at top with a swollen eye. It wasn't swollen yesterday when done a wc so maybe had fight and hit it on rock. Is there anything I can do to help the little guy as don't want him to die. Thx

Pop eye is an illness that is a reflection with what is going on in the water column. I would do water changes until the parameters are in check. The eye will return to normal, but the damage to the eye might already be done.

I too agree with sniperhank. Usually a water issue. High ammonia or nitrites. Have you checked your water parameters.

Done 3 40% on tank since, and lowered pho and no3. Using a new product for phos but can't get it to kick as needs really fast flow in sump so might go back to what was using before. I've moved fish to qt so water good and started dosing so will see if pulls through.

In the right direction. Hope it turns out for the best. It is a solid plan of correction.
