About 3 months ago my yellow tang and my (new) swallowtail angel got into a bit of a disagreement.

I was hoping her eye would heal own (or she'd lose it and the swelling would subside) I thought of lancing it when I moved her from my 90 to my 150 but I worried that would make the problem worse so I left it.

Have any of you had an injury like this? how was it treated?

Her eye itself appears fine it's the pocket above it that is swollen and looks mighty painful.

Fish is active,eating and fat.

What should my course of action be? I'd rather NOT tear my tank apart and I don't want to cause her undo harm.\

I'd go for a QT route and treat with something appropriate

IMHO, nothing treated in the DT will fix that without affecting all your tank's bacteria

I don't think medicating her will help it's like a giant blister. Eyes are clear.

i thinks its called "pop eye" usually caused by trauma but can be made worse by bacterial infection you can treat it with some meds maracin-two also probably get a QT set up to treat

One of my Black/White Ocellaris clowns had an eye just like that. I just left him be and it healed on it's own.

Where do you get the maracin-two????? I'm trying to find a vet to prescribe it to me and no one will......

It's not pop eye it's only located in that spot because that's where my tang got her with his scalpel she went through a full round of Kanaplex just to be sure back in June.This is now 4 months after my tang went after her. This is closer to a gas bubble or weird growth.
