My powerheads were off during the video, because with them on the clown ends up swimming on his side in one of the corners of the tank. That's one of the reasons I put him in the gallon. It has holes in it so there's flow and everything. Also he eats off the bottom of the container. I don't know how to feed him if he's free in the tank with the others.

If you're referring to him being stressed from being stuck in a small area, I can understand that. I'll remove the container then. I don't have a ph test at home but I'll take some water to the LFS to get tested tomorrow.

I don't know if he's sick at all. I have a feeling he might have just been starving from not having eaten for a while after turning blind. Who knows why he can't see in the first place. Here's two pictures I took yesterday:





I can't see anything that looks wrong. Should I remove the container and let him swim freely in the tank? I guess he'd die from starvation naturally then.

So it's been eating off the bottom of the container you put in the tank?

Have you noticed a weight gain since it started eating again?

The fish looks fine, including the one eye in the photo. No bruises or cuts, or discoloration.

You may want to try keeping it confined and eating for another week and then release it back into the tank to see if it can survive.

Just an update, he's been in the tank for around a week now. Hasn't been eating much but he's still alive, though he's developed HLLE probably due to stress and lack of nutrition. I will just let him be I guess, and let him go on his own.
