IMO, the problem looks like an injury just above the eye. The white stuff is probably fungus that has attached itself to the damaged tissue.

Is the white part around the eye getting a fuzzy growth to it?

Its a 300 litre curve glass. It has a 4 keyholes and a few smaller fish. There are also two golden wonder killis. There are lots of plants and hiding spaces and a floating weed / plant where they can hide when scared. They all get along really well and the keyholes and acara s hang out together.
