Hi, I am new to this board and I am looking for advice/help. Boris has an eye popping out of his head. Here is the history. Boris has a 2 gallon eclipse with filtration and heater. A few weeks ago we had a terrible storm that left us without power for 9 days. We have a generator that we would run from 8am to 11pm. We plugged the tanks in during that time. No water changes for about 3 weeks. Tuesday morning I looked at Boris and his eye was popped out! I also noticed a few scales on his head were damaged and fell off while I was looking at him. I'm thinking it could be either bacterial infection or (gut feeling) he got caught on something and injured himself. I had TriSulfa on hand and have been treating him for three days now. I did a 1/3 water change on Tuesday and plan on doing another on Friday. He is eating but he is not quite his usual self, hanging on the bottom until I come and look at him and then comes up to see me. I have been up past midnight for the last two nights, searching about pop-eye. I don't think it has gotten any better and I am worried. Help.
