I got a good look at him today, and one of his eyes is sticking out like two times farther than the other one. I can't post pictures, but does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? Other than that he's acting normal.

water change dude..you probably have high ammonia..

I agree had the same prob myself. Water from tap was 6ppm

I suggest to test tap and tank water first. If it's the tank. treat do a big waterchange after treatment. And use bio zyme or bio spira both work great for making a good biolodgical process.
If its the tap like mine buy a water filter from petsmart for 30 dollars. that will remove ammonia.

Look here!

I think it is most likely to be either ammonia burn or where the fish was attacked by another fish, either way I would suggest you make the water as good as possible - in laymans terms : Do a water change today, and in 2 days, and again a couple of days later, etc.
if there are any more problems please provide more info.

Clay from P Fish has a treatment regime that is supposed to work for almost everything, and consists of Maracyn 2 and penicillin. I am just going to use the Maracyn 2 because I am convinced that it is popeye.

I would not knock Clays treatment, I am sure it will clear up the problem, but I advise you speak to Clay as I would guess he will be able to provide more info on his treatment.
