Telescope Eyes


Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if it's normal for a telescope eye to have one eye bigger than the other. I know that a "perfect specimen" wouldn't. Percy has had one eye bigger than the other ever since i saw him in the pet shop which was quite a while ago now. It has got bigger, but only in proportion with the rest of his growth. Just wondered how common this was.

One of my one year old telescopes, Stimpy, has the same thing, his right eye is larger than the left. It's more fleshy which would mean normal growth, however if it appears to be filled with fluid then I think it would be cause for concern with a bacterial infection. From what I've read unequal eye size in telescopes is not uncommon. If your fish is showing signs of good health, growth, appetite, and activity then you should be OK.
