Mike L,

I can't believe you didn't post the tank and water conditions No matter now.....as indicated in this link, there are many probable causes. Water quality issues comprise 50% or more of the root cause.

Sounds like "cloudy eye" which is more o f a symptom than a disease, frequently associated with water quality:

It often clears up on its own if you do a couple partial water changes. I once had a black molly that got cloudy eye for 2-3 days after every release, and then it would clear up spontaneously each time, so other stresses can trigger it beside poor water quality.



I was also once "warned" at AH for posting links to Pandora's site 3 times in one week....I wonder if Pat will ban me for posting links to it 3 times today?
