So I picked up this gorgeous little halfmoon betta at my local petstore. There seems to be something up with his eye. The eye itself is fine, but just around it, it would seem the tissue has swollen, creating a bubble. I don't think it is popeye, since popeye makes the actual eye of the fish pertrude, whereas his doesn't, just the tissue behind. Here is a pic.
Tumour mayhaps? Or maybe another type of infection.
