Cloudy eyes on a fire mouth ?

Hey guys I noticed this issue on one of my firemouths a week ago and it didn't seem to bad until now where his eyes got cloudy and he is not moving much. I just did a water change so the water might be a bit cloudy. It is a 70 gallon aquarium with great air and filtration. Everyone else in the tank is great just the poor little guy seems to be struggling and by the way nobody is bothering him. Please check out the pics and let me know what you think. Thanks!Click image for larger version

He looks terrible, his gills are torched. What's up with the tank?

And what should I be doing with him? Can you tell why he has cloudy eyes ?
It seems like an infection of some sort.

Set up a hospital tank, get nice extra clean water in there.
