    Is it possible that my clown can go blind in the 1 eye? Everything was fine last night till this morning. The 1 eye went grey and swolen?
    Any help?
    :(

    a pic would help greatly, but it sounds like he has bumped it against LR or something in the tank and it should come right on its own.

    All I could find for "blindness" is excessive light....now that you mention the "white eye"...it could be Cloudy Eye..? Pic would help....

    Thanks will post some pics. Not sure if it can be lighting. As my system is only running for 2 months I don't have the rite lights yet. So my lights are very dim. I can only think its injury

    I also think it might be injury but when I search the WEB, then anything with "white" in the eye directs me to Cloudy Eye...I am however at a loss as to an injury that leads to "white eye"..as even "pop eye" doesn't make the eye/s go white..:confused1:..I think...:blush:
