I am not too sure if anyone else had this problem but when I got home today my bubble eye was sucked up in the intake of my filter. I thought it was dead so I got my net to pull it out and she wasn't! Her bubble was sucked up through the little cracks in the intake of the filter. She was fine prior, healthy and everything so I guess it was her misfortune. Anyways I freed her, (very carefully) I am very hopeful she will live.

I have had my bubble eye Cheeks, for about a year. I LOVE to watch him float around. He's currently in with a regular gold fish and a calico gold fish. I had a Tutty Fruity Frog, But he passed away.
I haven't ever had a problem with infection or a sac, Luckily. I'm looking for a friend just like him, but have failed to find one. I just love my lil' Cheeks.

My bubble eye fish is just sitting at the bottom of the tank. He does not want to swim at all. Why does he do this? Please help!

I have a bubble-eye and the top of his head is swelling. It looks like a tumor on the top of his head. Would this be his cheek jelly filling another area? Can it be a tumor? It looks painful since it's so stretched out. What is it and what do I do? Please help.

I had two bubble-eyes called Frankie and Benny, Benny died on Saturday the 27th of September 2008 and Frankie died on the 2nd October. They were two weeks old :(

My bubble-eye just got his cheek caught in the filter and now it has deflated. I see from other comments that their bubble-eyes have healed from this. Is it likely my little guy will heal and be okay, I hope so - I love this fish.

My Water Bubble eyed Fish ( Mista Bubblehead)) was getting picked on but we weren't sure by which fish! His bubble popped so we isolated him to heal in an unstressful envoronment and a week later, it was fully inflated again.
so we put him back in with the others and low and behold, it had popped again! so, back into isolation tank and it had almost inflated within 24 hours, only to have him get his cheek caught ( i don't know what the heck he was doing) in the filter! i pulled it apart and he swam out, all popped and red again1!
next day, half inflated again! he heals soo much quicker than the first time.
we thought it was our small sucker fish that did it the first time, but now that our silver goldfish has a fat tummy and we're missing 2 neon tetra's .... we're thinking it's him!

Mysteriously, some tiny snails have appeared from nowhere! can anyone explain this? we have a sea snail in the tank but dunno where the littlies came from!!
