It does look like Pop eye to me. Here's some information on treating it that looks like it might help you:

Hmm I accidentally overdosed excel a few days ago. I don't think it would be a bacterial infection I have been dosing Melafix every so often. I'm thinking it may have been from him diving top to bottom to fast...!? Which is weird but seems the most relatable cause.

I have to admit, I have done this to my fish once, i added tap water with a hose straight to the tank. There was something about the water that made their eyes pop, overnight, 5 fish died from it. Some of their bellies had holes to. Like the bends for fish.

How many fish survived? This is really weird and out of the blue. It has been about 5 days since the ovedrdose. I use a python to change my water. I've had very healthy fish with no issues and gettin fat and happy. That's the thing about tap you never know what's coming out of the other end :/

Something that was consistent in the link I posted earlier is to ensure very clean water. I'd try doing pretty aggressive water changes to see if it helps alleviate it. If you have a QT tank, maybe move the cory there and dose with Maracyn and Maracyn II also

However, I wouldn't dose Maracyn and Maracyn II in the main tank imo. I dosed it in a hospital tank of mine and it did seem to kill or severely limit the beneficial bacteria colony. Ammonia started spiking at around day 2 or 3 of dosing. The packaging says it won't do this but I'm pretty confident it was the cause

Well the more I look at it I believe it may have been the pressure cause it lookes like its brains are about to pop out of its head, you can see it if you look close at the pic above

Since, I did accidentally overdose the Excel have been doing a lot of major water changes and wonder if this mayb causing a issue as well. The tank does have pressurized co2...I have baby fry that are still alive in the tank as well as babies, juvies, young adults, and some that are about 3 yrs old. No issues with them.

Im not a big fan of quarantining settled fish unless absolutely necessary because it usually stresses the fish more and I never had a positive return from doing so.

Good points. It is odd when a single fish shows symptoms and others don't - makes things a bit more confusing I think

And agreed on quarantining a settled fish, there's no doubt it adds additional stress to them. I just thought this could be an option if it was believed to be an infection, to keep the other fish safe and ensure dosing won't affect the main tank

I suppose diving top to bottom could cause an issue but hadn't thought about it too much myself honestly. My cories seem to love diving rapidly to the top then back down (20g Tall) and there haven't been any issues yet *knock on wood*

I do hope you have a positive outcome. Keep us updated!

What size tank do you have I can't image the pressure from going up to the water surface and back down too fast would cause anything that looks like that. I mean WOW my Oto cats do it all the time never have seen any of there eyes like that.

I never needed the "For Dummies" book for my dogs but for a glass box WoW.
