Cloudy eyes can be a water quality issue, sometimes an injury or a bacterial infection. If the eye is uniformaly cloudy, it is likely not an injury. If one area looks bad, its probably injury and fish can usually get bettor simply through good diet and keeping water as pristine as possible. If your parameters are pristine, that eliminates that possibility and leaves bacterial infection or possibly the signs of a disease coming on (some have this as a symptom, but often both eyes are cloudy). You can QT, improve diet, treat for bacterial infection and keep pristine water. You can also try improving water and diet alone, which may work on its own without medication.

Is food poisoning a possibility? I may have left the Krill out a bit long and possible re froze them to some degree. The lion fisk keeps squeezing between two pieces of rock for some reason so guess injury possible. Yes its just one eye. Parameters are or at-least were good. I got a new pellet food as well, its soft and sinks and is Very good allegedly.

Also if i replace the filtre media in my cannister and tip that water, which in-turn reduces the water capacity. Will it affect anything if i dont replace that water immediatly ?

I'm not sure about the slug. Sorry.

Check your parameters. It could be as simple as doing some water changes and maybe adding some vitamin supplements to food. I'm not sure about the food poisoning idea. Maybe someone else would know about refereeing food like that.

Ok Thanks. I read something about food poisoning before.

No. Fish don't get food poisoning. The slug is some sort of cucumber. Just watch it to see what it eats before getting paranoid and tossing it in the garbage. It should be fine in your predator tank.
