KRIB eye injury!
 
So I was placing a tank separator in my 55G so the Kribs could live alone and breed without being hassled by the other fish. The male freaked out while I was putting it in, darting to the surface to try to go over it, wedging himself inside the clip that holds the separator on. When I got him loose, he seemed disoriented and sat in the corner breathing fast for the whole night.

He seems to be getting a little better now and is swimming around a little but his left eye is BULGED out of its socket like he has a miniature hockey puck over his eye, but it seems to be functioning - the eyeball moves. Will this go away? Should I add some extra salt to their area of the tank?

See tank info below. THANKS.
