Hello everyone,
I was wondering if my clownfish has an eye infection or bacteria in his eye.
I just got my clownfish this week, my tank is a month old now.
Although, the LFS had snowflake clownfish that was in a 10 gallon with multiple other snowflake clownfish. Yet I chose the healthiest one out of every clownfish there was.
My clownfish only has the foggy part on his left side of his eye. I know this is not a blindness because he can perfectly see food float around from both sides, he is very active, he chases me when i enter the room, he is very healthy, no signal of odd swimming or sign of crashing into anything, and he eats very well every day. I feed him 3 times a day, currently in the ugly stage, used to it. Now I am wondering if the issue with the eye will go away by itself like most eye issues such as eye-pop. If it doesn't go away by itself and the eye is infected with bacteria. Please let me know what I can do to help him out!

Thanks,

Can be from injury or exposure to high salinity or ammonia levels. You can test and assure both dont apply. If it worsens, you can treat in separate tank using Maracyn as pictured below for at least 5 days

Good News, his foggy eye is completely gone! Glad it wasn’t anything harmful
