If his eyes look like this this is what I would do:)

1. Get a heater and raise them temp to 78F.

2. Get maracyn 2 use that as directed.

3. Use 1/8 of a teaspoon of Epsom salt per 5 gals of water just once with the whole treatment of Maracyn2.

This should be about a weeks treatment.

Then if you can go to http://www.goldfishconnection.com and get the Medigold this is an anitibotic fish food to help this.

My black moor got popeye a few weeks ago - one eye swelled to about three times the size of the other within a couple of days.

I treated it with Melafix (thinking I could use something stronger later if need be), but actually the Melafix alone completely cured it within a week. Since then, it's occasionally started to bulge again but as soon as it does I just add Melafix for 3 days or so and it goes back down. It's also stopped pop-eye developing in one of my other fish.

Wonderful stuff! (Also excellent for stopping fin/tail rot, healing wounds including ragged fins, and getting rid of bloody streaks).
