Popeye?

Got my lil bro's fish last night and it might have popeye?

Or can some bettas have somewhat bulgy eyes? They're not really too bad... No good pics yet though. Sorry!

I heard it can be caused by bad water. Could he just be in shock because of a sudden switch to decent water, and the swelling might go down once he's acclimated?

Pictures would really help, pop-eye looks really like his eye is swollen and sometimes the eye looks sorta cloudy. I dont think betta can have natural bulgy eyes...

He looks fine today. Last night was definitely swollen but he's way better today. Must have been some shock from the new water.

Turns out he's really shy. Isn't that weird for red bettas?

I noticed my new Betta had bulgy eyes... its too dark to check if its still there. I don't know if its within the correct amount of natural bulge.

Poor Redtail had bugs in his cup at the store. No wonder he got a litle swollen!
