Cloudy eye more often than not is caused from bacterial problems and/or high DOC
water. In which a UV
will have no affect on. A few small 10% water changes several times over the next few weeks will have much better results.
's can however aid in parasitic problems, reduce instances of nuisance algaes as well as the drawback (IMO
) of reducing planktonic populations. It should never
be considered a cure for anything. Only an aid for an already proven cure in regards to fish ailments.
