Pretty fish. Most likely he was bitten or snagged his eye on something. The eye is capable of healing by itself. Just continue to keep his water clean and keep an eye on him.

Hey, that's almost a pun.

Agreed it could be an injury, the best cure for cloudy eye is clean pristine water. I have a cichlid that didn't lose his eye in a fight but rather it got pushed back in his socket a bit. It healed fine other than that and he is still fione today.
