 Dear  All
 
 today  morning  I  found  that  the  right  eye  of  my  common  clown  has  popped  out.  Though  its  still  attached,  I  doubt  it  would  function  normally.
 The  clown  is  not  showing  any  other  marks  of  injury  on  the  body  expect  a  small  cut  in  the  underfins.
 It  has  now  limited  its  swimming  to  one  cormer  of  the  tank.  Feeding  is  normal.
 
 Is  this  an  injury  (outcome  of  a  usual  fight  with  other  fish)  or  a  sign  of  disease.?
 Kindly  advice.
 
 Other  tank  mates:
 1  clarki  clown  (bigger  than  than  common  clown)
 1  Yellow  tail  blue  damsel
 2  false  percula  (very  small  fishes)
 1  dr  Wrasse
 1  Sailfin  tang
 1  Green  Carpet  anemone.
 
 
 THE  water  parameters  were  checked  just  a  couple  of  days  back.  Ammonia,Nitrite  O  ppm  and  Nitrate  5  ppm.
 Skimmer  and  canister  with  CAG  running  24  x7.

 it  could  be  either,  a  photo  would  have  helped.  in  most  likelihood  it's  disease  caused  by  poor  water  quality.

 Its  most  likely  popeye  disease.  Probable  causes  are  stress,  poor  water  quality,  etc.  If  you  can  quarantine  it  to  a  separate  tank.  1/2  dosage  than  recommended  of  Methaylene  blue  may  help  quick  cure.  
 
 Non  medicated  treatment  alternately  if  its  feeding  well  ..  then  dip  your  food  in  glarlic  juice  before  feeding  and  it  works  well  too.  Keep  your  tank  temperature  constant.  Use  a  good  UV  to  avoid  the  spread.
 
 Warm  Regards

 Hi  sid
 
 Have  checked  the  water  parameters.  Does  not  seem  to  be  a  problem.  Readings  already  mentioned  above.
 I  suspect  attack  form  the  bigger  clown.  
 
 Would  try  to  post  the  pictures.  
 
 What  should  I  be  doing  now?

 HI  Nash
 Could  stress  be  due  to  constant  bugging  by  the  new  clown  fish  ?
 
 Can  I  cure  the  pop  eye  disease  with  Methaylene  blue?
 
 Now  I  feel  I  should  seperate  this  form  others  if  the  disease  can  spread.

 appears  more  like  popeye,  it  can  be  cured  using  epsom  salt,  or  methylene  blue,
 better  move  the  clown  to  a  QT  tank  till  it  recovers,
 w/c  every  day  atleast  30%-40%  daily  will  speed  up  the  recovery,

 @hitesh,  Mortis,  Mudassir
 
 It  was  just  an  popeye.  I  shifted  it  to  a  quarantine  and  used  Epsom  Salt.
 Completely  cured  in  just  one  week  and  was  transferred  back  to  the  DT  in  12  days  time.
 Was  doing  absolutely  fine  for  the  next  three-four  months  until  the  temperature  did  it.
 
 Thanks
