Hello Peoples

Any ideas on what causes fish eyes to 'Pop' out?

Only one eye on one of my Bara has done it, but it's gone off food (no surprise really)... Guessing it may become tonight's dinner as a result!! its still swimming around, but very lethargic..

Hard to get good pics without pulling it out of the water, which will stress it even more!

Just want to make sure its nothing more sinister before it happens to any of the other fish. There seems to be a lot of snails in their tank (the marron used to clean them up, but since they died they've taken over. The other tank thats linked to it seems to be fairly snail free - think the silver perch take care of them!)

Thanks in advance :)

There are a number of different causes, including bacterial, fungal, parasitic and environmental :dontknow: . It's actually called popeye (pop-eye or pop eye) or Exophthalmia.

Cheers Scotty

I shall do some 'googling' and see what I can find!

Nothing has really changed much in their environment... has me stumped. Guess I will have to just monitor them and make sure none of the others get it too!
