    Hi Reefers. So I have my first marine tank at last. I have a naso tang and today noticed that its one eye is white and cloudy. The tang is eating well. Any help please. The tank was bought second hand and is well matured. Sorry I tried to take a picture of the eye but the tang was not very helpfull. Camera shy
