Discus cloudy eye

Hi guys, one of our discus has been turning dark, getting bullied and hiding in the corner for about a week now. I finally got a really good look at him/her today and their eyes are WHITE. I figured it was cloudy eye and removed them and moved them to a 20 gallon so I donít have to use a ton of medication in the original tank (no other fish is showing symptoms) whatís the best method to treat this? Poor thing looks awful. I feel so bad. Checked water parameters and everything checks out, keeping the temp at 83 in the 20 gallon and added melafix, general cure (probably not necessary), and aquarium salt. Am I on the right track? Side note: as soon as I removed this fish from the tank the rest of the fish got brighter in color and more active? Does that mean anything? Thanks in advance!

I've always had good luck using Furan-2 from api, melafix and salt in combination for both cloudy eye and pop eye. Just my 2 cents

Yah, they're kind of a holes like that. I'd just keep the water extra clean and get him fed. Leave the lights off and let him recover. Adding him back to the herd may be tricky.
I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
