Cowfish Eye Injury

My cowfish appears to have a puncture wound in the lower part of his eye. There is a significant amount of blood that has build up under the top layer of skin covering the eye and their is also some red jelly like substance coming out of the wound.

Other than an obvious loss of sight in the eye, the fish aprears to be acting normally and is eating.

I have posted a photo.. sorry about the bad quality but I cant get the camera to focus properly.


I have added some myxazin to the tank as I do not have a qt ready but I dont know what else I can do to help.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
