562 gal or 562 litre?

Cloudy eye is usually the result of high organics in the tank and/or injury. You may not have that many fish in the tank but it can still be a concern especially if still maturing. Best remedy is several large water changes with well aged/aerated SW.

What are the water specs?
What was the last fish added and how long ago?
Do you use a QT?

Cheers
Steve

You should try to do them more often than monthly, especially if your fish are exhibiting signs of bacterial infections. Popeye or sometimes more commonly just single eye swelling are a sign of this as well.

If you are using a synthetic sea salt mix and making it yourself, let it stand for a good 24 hrs mixing with a powerhead and heater (heating may not be need in Malta.. LOL) once the desired SG/salinity is achieved. If using natural seawater harvested by yourself, let the water sit in a dark area of the house with a powerhead and cover for two weeks. Having some carbon in there as well will help remove impurities.

Cheers
Steve
