Fish is a Neolamprologus Tretocephalus
Any idea how I should treat this guy?

His fins and body look good. Looks like he just has a swollen cloudy eye.. maybe from someone else being aggressive or he banged it on something.. I don't think it's popeye.

I showed the right side so you can see that his fins and body look fine. It's just the left eye.

Melafix and Pimafix combo?

Any idea's? Right now I have him quarantined to a 20Gal so I can destress him and he's totally solo in there for whatever medication I put in.

Looks like the eye is damaged- the best thing you can do is to keep the water clean and his stress level low.

Melafix may help healing, and Pimafix isn't a bad idea. If you see a fungus develop, then you should look at an anti-fungal med.
