Typically fungal infections like cloudy eye can be contributed to failing water parameters. I'd get your nitrites down to 0 and keep doing plenty of water changes. That and time should see positive results. Good luck.

This can be 1 of at least three things:
1. Was he transported in a plastic or metal container? If this is the case, the cornea could be scratched and should regenerate. You can try using Methylene Blue.
2. Can you get a magnifying glass and check to see if he has worm larva in the eye?
3. It could be a bacterial infection and should be QT'ed and treated with 12 ml of Methylene Blue per 1G and should be done in a separate QT without using carbon, for 5 days. But since you are currently using your QT, you might be able to get away with doing it for both fish (you may want to wait for someone more versed, than me, to add their input). I would also soak their frozine in garlic to help boost their immune systems.
