I have a flame angel that had or has popeye. I did some reading and some said treat others to leave alone. I decided against treating and left in the main tank. Things werent getting better after 3 weeks to about a month and my clownfish was beating on him a bit so i decided to qt. i treated with macaryn 2 in a qt for 10 days and the cloudiness around the eye went away, his color became much more read and the swelling around the eye subsided. However behind his eye is still swollen and bubbled out a bit. I have attached a picture. I am not sure what to do. Please help

I have treated that condition by inserting a 25guage hypodremic needle into the bubble in clown fish . It IS DELICATE AND DIFFICULT to preform . I had to repeat the process two weeks later and it subsided.

Thank you - do you have any links as to suggested techniques? I am assuming you took the fish out of water right?
