Bubble on eye ????

I think H.R.G. has a bubble over his right eye. It looks like a small bubble, kinda cloudy. What is this and how do I fix it?

It must be an epidemic, because mine has it this morning, too. However, Sebastian's whole eye looks like a bubble (or is swollen). He was fine at 2am this morning, but when I looked at him at 9:30am, one eye is bigger than the other. He is in a 1-gallon tank and I change his water once a week. He has live plants, has always been a happy fish, and is a good eater. His water temperature is around 78 degrees. He is still very active and has not lost his appetite. He just has a swollen eye. I have a picture, but I have no clue as to how to post it.

Advice is appreciated!

There is how to post pictures :D

What are all of your tank parameters, that might help, and it might be worth filling out the questionnaire on this page:

I think I figured it out!

Here's his good side.



Here's his side with the swollen eye.



This is a straight-on shot.




I'm wondering if he got too close to one of his plants or his home and got a scratch. The eye is cloudy and looks like a scale or something is over it. I'm not familiar with fish ailments to know...
