  18. thank you, i have not given fresh foods, what would be best, cucumber is the only thing and it was for the pleco, then i noticed he was eating the eye sacks and he went upstairs to other tank, his eyes are so big it is hard for him to get floating food, i have brine shrimp and discs and the lrg flakes fall for him too....i make sure he gets food i view feedings. i got the meds because i noticed a couple of streeks in his tail, his tail is white and orange and i can't tell between streeks and blood viens he has very outspoken viens in his eyes sacks and where they bounce on the bottom seem to be alot more...such odd fish, i just love them. thanks agaihn... rita
  19. hi!! i just love my bubble eys and try to learn as much as i can about them, i have a 6 inch orange, he is my big boy. i have a calico and a white with spots of orng and blck, they are my little ones about a yr old. puffer the big boy is three and has eyes that are bigger than his body. have fun!! rita
  20. hi all bubble eye owners...with more yrs at it than me. i have a wonderful orange bubble eye, he is aprox three yrs old...however his eyes are bigger than his body!! try to picture a golf ball with tenis ball eyes!!!! he sucks on his eye at times, and they google all over when he swims around. the past two days i have woken up the tank to find him upside down!!!!! still alet breathing just lounging...yesterday i figured he would be dead when i got home, i checked water all ok, change filter and carbon..all other fish are ok...last night he was upright as always!!! this morn againt there he was all top over again and now agian is right side up...i was just wondering if it could be an easy ways to fish sleep for him cause his eyes are so big and heavy...or a swim bladder prob??? he corrects the issue in the light. i have not changed anything in the tank other than normal water and filter such things..i have gotten a anti biotic treatment just incase. thanks so much everyone...did not know where to put this so general was a choice...hope it ok rita
