Striata with a puffy red eye..

Doing my fish count this morning I noticed one of my new striatas didn't look so good.

One of his eyes is red and swollen. I don't know whether he got into a fight or what happened, but I do know it happened during lights out. There are 3 clowns, 3 yoyos, 2 dojos, 1 krib, assorted corys and 2 angels with them.

If I had to make a guess, I'd say he got too close to the angels and one of them got him. My angels are very aggressive.

I'm just not sure though. :-(

He is in my 75 gallon tank, water is good, Ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates are ~15ppm. The tank is planted. Filtration is 2 penguin 330's w/bio-wheels and a Proquatics 1600 cannister filter. The tank is over-stocked, but I am diligent with my tank maintenance and it is WAY over-filtered.

Catching him is out of the question, this tank is a jungle, so getting him into QT is out.

I know there isn't much to go on here, but does anyone have any ideas on treatments?
