Last night our Coral Beauty, a rather large specimen, whom we've had for 2 weeks, was swimming in place an inch below the surface of the water.

This morning it has one eye clouded over, but not swollen, still swimming in place near surface.

I removed him and put him in a separate bowl with air stone.

What next?

Thanks so much!

Mine was a different instance, but I had a puffer with a bad eye. His eye got stuck in the powerhead though, it was huge, swollen, red, and the white coating over the outside. I put the API "stress coat" in the tank, it has aloe in it. That seemed to have sped up the process a bit. His eye is now 100%

I'm really glad yours recovered... This one has a different problem all together. He's doing fine in the 4-cup container w/airstone... so far.

Anyone recommend any meds, or should I just put him back? Not sure if he has a contagious condition or not. There's nothing on his scales or fins.
