Unusally bulging of one or both eyes is Pop-eye (Exophthalmia) and perhaps cloudy eye. You'll want to put the platys in a little hospital tank and treat them with a med for bacterial infections and/or parasites.

Look for these products at your LFS:


- this would be my first choice for the pop-eye.
(the tetracycline)


Best of luck with the little platys and hope to hear they're recovered soon.

I'm sorry you lost him. I'd just watch the tank and see if any other fish show symptoms over the next few weeks and start treatment IF they do so you're doing what we'd do also.
