Question Shedding lion?

So, we picked up our cute dwarf lion and she's a real beauty. Eating great at first. We noticed a cloudy eye, and in the last day or 2 has spread beyond the eye area. The only way I can describe it, it looks like a bad sunburn peeling. I have also found some slime and flakes floating in the water. She has since stopped eating, but breathing and swimming fine when not hiding. Someone has also told me they thought it was popeye, but would popeye spread. I thought it was an eye thing.. I'm still thinking shedding. Has anyone had any experience with this and if so how long does this usually last, a few days, a week? If so, how long can they go without eating? Just want to do right by our new addition. Thanks in advance.

Pop eye and cloudy eye can be healed with pristine water conditions. What are your water test results?
