Ok, my rbp have been acting fine in their 75g tank. The water conditions are fine. The temp is at 80 degrees. I have noticed that the eyes on my fish have been getting bigger. But I looked at some pics on the web and it seemed normal. So I come home today to find that one of my rbp has what looks like a bag of pus above one of his eyes. I am including some pics so as to insure proper diagnosis. He acts fine, swims, and eats. Maybe he just bashed into something. This is the only problem and I did not see this yesterday. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you all!

The first thing I would do is put in some salt.

1 tablespoon per 5 gallons of water is the rule of thumb.

Do this and observe him for about 3-4 days and then post again to see if it's helped or not.

I would do the same, but I would do a water change first

I'd like to know if the problem has spread out more since noticing it for the first time. If it started out small and grew.
