i have had two cardinalfish for about two weeks and they are pretty small. one of them has had a cloudy eye for a week or so and then tonight while after the lights had been off for a couple of hours i noticed that its colors were very pale while the other cardinal was not. Is he sick? and if so, do you have any idea whats wrong and how i can fix it?

Start with a 30% PWC.
Please post all your tank parameters:

How many gallons is the tank?
How long ago did the cycle complete?
How did you cycle the tank?
How long has it been up and running with fish?
Filtration both mechanical and biological?
Describe the lighting units (type bulbs, total wattage).
What are the current water parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, salinity, temp, calcium and alkalinity. Please post numbers for the results.
What else is in the tank (livestock and equipment)?
