    Happen to me,
    Mine was cause by high temp in the tank causing the fish to stress
    And backteria from another fish,
    You cant really do anything about it now.
    Have you try doing the fresh water dip?

    No I haven't even tried to catch him.

    Ertremly healthy and fast.

    I just feed him some garlic soap mysis.

    Did it heal on it own. Did you treat the fish with meds.

    My book says It could also be a general bacterial infection of the eye, early signs of Cryptocaryon infection Or early signs of Coral fish disease. QT is where this fish should be moved to in case it is something that can spread. Treat it as you would a bacterial infection and keep an eye out for other Cryptocaryon symptoms because it is so common in tangs.

    YES ... ICH is the laymen term for Cryptocaryon infection. It is a possibility that the cloudy eye or eyes is an early sign of the infection. The book I get my Symptoms / diagnosis information from is rather old. However ... so is Cryptocaryon infection. If it is Cryptocaryon infection you will soon be seeing white spots on the side of the fish that are about the size of a grain of salt. If none of this appears you can bet it is a bacterial eye infection or general infection that has affected the eyes first because they are so delicate and don't have a coating of music over them like the fins and skin. I think it is REAL important to remove this fish from your display tank for treatment and to prevent spreading. Bacterial infections are usually VERY contagious and Difficult to treat.
