    It can be related to water conditions. Can you post a picture and some parameters for your water? Is it just one eye or both? Usually both eyes would be affected. Did the fish injure itself in the tank somehow? Telescopes are notorious for doing that.

    Why would someone advise melafix and pimafox for this issue? This is not exactly the solution for pop eye cases. Kindly post your water parameters eapecially hardness if you have a kit for that. Somervell has a point. Most pop eye cases are caused by deteriorating water conditions. Herbal meds are temporary fixes and more often than not, simply aggravate the issue.

    we used pimafix. for a week and then did a fifty percent water change as instructed and his eye cleared up considerably. the only problem was i also treated our community tank for ick. the black moor also had ick when we got him. ( never q tanked) i know bad me. he was sick when we got him a few weeks ago. our tank is good it was the lfs tanks that had bad water quality
