Bulging Eye?

Oh no..

My blue tang which had ick .. now has one bulging eye.

He has been scratching himself and I think he may have a bacterial infection.

Does this sound plausible and what should I do?

Was it not ick?

sounds like pop eye which is usually caused by a scratch on the eye. It will usually go away on it's own in a healthy fish but if the fish has ich it should be treated for that which can be fatal.

Should be treated for ich. I'm guessing it scratched it's eye from scratching from the ich. I read your other post and you should really start treating the fish for ich before it's too late.

I would try hypo in a quarantine but you have to take it slow.
There is a fish disease forum here which would prolly be more help.
