    So one of my preacox rainbow has a pop eye but I noticed its right side of the gill is swollen but the left side is normal.
    Hopefully you can see in picture these fish never wanna stay still

    Unilateral popeye is suggestive of an injury. I wonder if someone picked on him? Do you have a QT tank?
