Congo tetra rapid breathing + swollen eyes

Amilia

About 1 week ago two of my Congo tetras starting breathing rapidly and have not been eating. Today I noticed one has abnormally large and popped eyes.
I have given both 2x salt baths doesn’t seem to have helped.
My levels are fine Ammonia - .25 Nitrate 15 ppm abs nitrite 0 ppm

does anyone know what I can do to save / treat them? I do need help asap as I think it may be soon that they could pass

Pop eye is typically an indicator of some sort of internal infection.
Unfortunately there really is no proven remedy to cure it.
Healthy & stable water parameters as well as good nutrition are the best weapons against disease.
Hope things get better soon.
