    Hello!

    I have a freshwater koi angelfish. I went to check on him this morning and he seems to have a "film" or something over his eye. I can't attach any photos. In essence, imagine something that looks like a contact with a spiral on it. It is nearly over his eye. I believe it is not popeye. It was not there the night before. Hes acting normally and eating. Any help regarding this would be greatly appreciated!

    20 gal breeder (he's in a pair)
    Ph=6.0-6.5
    Nitrite= 0
    Nitrate=0-20
    Ammonia=0

    A cloudy eye is usually caused by a bacteria or fungal infection stemming from a minor injury or scrape to the eye. Usually it will heal on its own with extra clean water, but sometimes the foggy eye will get worse and turn into popeye. One of my Africans started with a foggy eye which worsened into popeye. I treated him in quarantine and he survived, but lost the eye.

    When looked at from the the top is the eye still normal in size compared to the other eye?

    For now I would up the water change and if it doesn't show improvement in a couple days then you might want to think of medicating him.

    I've tried to, but my image is too big to post.

    It's kinda zoomed in, but you can see the eye
