Barb with Cataracts & Losing Color?

No new plants or fish in approx. last six months. I did miss one my usual water changes two weeks ago and as a result have a little more algae than usual, but aside from that the tank has been in a healthy homeostasis for quite a while.

I have had two black ruby barbs for over a year. Suddenly, one of them is pale but yellowy in color. It's eyes look like cartoon-eyes, kind of bulgey with a whitish gray covering. Doesn't look good at all. The other barb, and all other fish, look fine.

If somebody can teach me how to insert pics, that would be great. Until then, links below:

Any ideas? Thank you!
