Cloudy eye

I've had this yellow tang for almost a week. He's real happy looking, plays with my clowns all the time and eats fine. Today I noticed that his right eye is now cloudy. You can still see his eye color but it almost looks like a cataract. Do fish get cataracts? lol

He might have hit it on something or another fish bit him. That can make the eye cloud like that. I have no clue otherwise.

Lets see if anyone else can give you advice on this. I have yet to have ick and I know little about it. I just know how it can be identified. Fluff knows a great deal about ick, maybe she will chime in.

Here is an idea. Start another thread and title it "I think I have Ick!" and explain what is going on with the white spots and cloudy eyes. This might help solicite a better response.

Trust me, everyone has a problem with their tank now and again. It will take no time to clear up and you will be on the road to a healthy tank in no time. Problems like this make most hobbiest appreciate their tank much more.

What was the result of your tests. Water Qualitycould stress your fish causing them to be more prone to ick and diseases. Please post your results. Thanks
