hey i dont know what is wrong but I have a Black Percula Clown in a 12g nano tank. It was fine this morning but I just noticed at 8 tonight that one of its eyes looks weird and big, please tell me what has happened, I have no idea.
I have had it for about 2 or 3 months now and its been doing fine.

Looks like popeye to me. One of my clowns got that after it got stung by a coral. I quarantined it for 2 weeks and treated it with Maracyn2. 10-day Erythromycin treatment works great too.

Well, since it hasn't gone away, you should quarantine the clown and treat it with either Maracyn2 or Erythromycin for 10 days. That'll take care of it.

yes it looks like an ocellaris except for the neon-yellow fins. the only clownfish i know that has yellow fins like that is the clarkii. the stripe pattern is more like that of a clarkii, but the tail is more like an ocellaris....maybe its a hybrid!
