Exclamation Is this POPEYE??

Hi guys, I have had Jeffrey in his five gallon tank for about 3 months now. He had some health issues previously, but everything has cleared up and he has looked great other than two tail biting episodes, But I did notice his eyes were looking unusually large. I was worried about popeye, but dismissed it as him just getting bigger and his eyes potentially growing first?? Any way he gets 1 100%, and 1 50% water change per week. I can't test the water levels right this second but I might go up to the pet store if you think I need to. I hope I'm just being paranoid, but since I moved I swear his eyes have gotten even larger. I havn't noticed any strange behavior, and he seems to be acting completely normal. He still eats like a little pig and interacts with me alot. I took a few pics any input would be greatly appreciated. FYI I have Maracyn two on hand. Thanks.

I'm not sure because his head is so dark, but it doesn't look like popeye.

:P Thanks anyway hopefully a knowledgeable member will post soon. Honestly I didn't think it was popeye either but I swear they have gotten even larger, even though he doesn't look unhealthy in the least. His eyes look HUGE to me. Thanks for posting anyway keeping the thread at the top. PLEASE PEOPLE give me some peace of mind!

I would probably post in the disease section - anyone prowling through the disease assists would be able to ID it.
