Cloudy eyes is a sign of not so good water quality. How about posting some water test results. How old is your set up? Moving this to the sick fish forum.

Did you cycle your tank? Also that is way to many fish to have added to your tank in that short of a period of time. That`s a huge bioload for a just started tank. I would get new test strips because those fish in a two month old tank you should at least have high nitrates if not ammonia and nitrites also. JMO

What is your water change routine? Source water?

With zero nitrate and that fish load (300G + bioload IMO), it doesn't appear that the tank is cycled. Are you running canisters? Have live rock? How much?

Agree with the others... even if the tank was cycled properly, adding that many fish that quick would cause another cycle. Did you test for ammonia/nitrites in the days or weeks after adding those fish?
