Last night I noticed that my fish Gollum's eyes looked funny. I did a google search and it looked like it might be popeye, but by the time I got up this morning, his color on his belly looked grayish, and his eyes are swollen much bigger. I'm very worried because he looked fine two days ago, and now he looks horrible. I tried to take a picture, but my camera isn't good quality, so all I was getting was blurs and he was acting spooked by the camera(that's usual for him). Can anyone give any advice or tell me what's wrong with him?
