I just got my new gramma from LFS the other day had a fish emergency so he went to my display tank instead of QT he is healthy but developed pop-eye. What should I treat with? Should I feed medicated food? Should I move to QT? Do I have to move to QT to feed medicated food?(Never had a fish have pop-eye before)

Damsel beat gramma up pretty bad when introduced
Yes, I was going to say, something has been tagging the gramma. Don’t trust the damsels to stop though, it could start up again.
Mld Popeye like this often goes away on its own, especially when caused by trauma as is likely in this case. If you do decide to treat, I would recommend erythromycin (Maracyn 1) in a treatment tank.
