Help with my Coral Beauty please

I got this coral beauty about a week ago for a 60 gallon with a sixline wrasse, algae blenny, and 2 false percs, and was perfectly fine. It is still fine, no tethered fins/ich/velvet/anything else (knock on wood) and is still eating and picking at the rocks, but has cloudy eyes. they're not really full blow pop eye, but they definitely have maybe a 50% cloudiness.
water levels as of last night 4/10 -
ammonia: 0
nitrite: 0
nitrate: <10
salinity: 1.025 (working on lowering it a bit)
i was thinking about doing a freshwater dip, but i dont know if that would stress him out even more, or even putting him into a QT and treat him like that.
Please, any suggestions would be helpful!
Thank you!

I would def QT until you kno for sure what is wrong with the fish. I personally keep my tank at 1.025 and I would not jump on the fresh water dip right away. QT and monitor him and post some pics so others can see and chime in

Just wondering, what's the fastest way to cycle? The big tank is about a year old if that helps.
Got him a 10 gallon and am going to set it up tonight but just not sure what to do

Best thing for cycling a QT at this point is to add some media from your DT. It can be a filter sponge, floss, bioballs, whatever. If you have any live rock rubble you can afford to sacrifice, that will work as well, BUT you probably will kill everything except the bacteria on it and generally won't be able to move anything fro the QT back to the display dependeing on what (if any) meds you use.
