I woke up today and my fw pipefish has popeye. I quickly did a 50% water change then ran out and got some maracin which I have added one tablet today. I plan on doing another water change everyday while treating with maracin everyother day as directed. Is there anything else I can do, it looks like he might be coming down with it in his other eye too.

if it is only in one eye it is most likely not pop-eye, but where it was attacked by something.
pop-eye looks like those black moor goldfishes.

it could also be a sign of internal bacteria

I suggest you do a water change and seperate it from the other fish

yeah they are bulging like that except the eyes are completely clouded over. And I'm pretty sure that none of the fish are attacking it, they are a dwarf gourami and 3 tetras and a pleco.
