What should I do if my new little Rainbow has developed a cloudy eye? His one eye is ok but the other looks a bit swollen and it is cloudy. are there any meds to use to help??

Thanks!!

well, water test/water change should be in order first.(and isolate/quarantine the fish if possible)

and hope you find the link useful.

Good morning,

I agree with Steed about the water change. Keep the tank as pristine as you can. I don't really see a need to quarantine for cloudy eye. Cloudy eye is usually caused by poor water conditions. Do you know your readings for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH?

I've moved your thread to the Freshwater Fish Disease section of the forum.

Best of luck!
Ken
