African cichlid Peacock eye issue grey

S144

I bought an African cichlid peacock two days ago and now it has an eye issue. It’s left eye had a grey covering over it. Plus he seems a little off, hiding in the corner not swimming around. Eating is a little slow too. Anyone have this before?

I had a tetra with bulging/white eyes and treated with antibacterial and it cleared up. Not sure if that’s you have, but depending on rest of stocking/tank set up etc I would not let it go untreated. if it was me id put it in hospital and medicate. I typically use API products but have used others as well. possibly emergency template could help others chime in.
GL and please update with treatment and resolution it can help others in there search.

Looks like an injured & infected eye. You might try "Microbe Lift Artemiss". Petco sells it.
