One of my electric blue haps jumped out of the tank a while back, and I think he might have injured his eye. It almost looks like the other layer of his eye is torn, and it looks cloudy. Should I stick him in a different tank and treat him with antibiotics, or will it heal up on it's own? I'm worried, I hope it doesn't permanently affect his vision.

OK. I was thinking about adding some salt to the tank, but I didn't because I have two plecos in the tank and I heard that they are more sensitive to salt since they are scaleless.

It looks like it's already starting to heal up. I'm just a little worried since his eye is cloudy, I hope he doesn't have a bacterial infection. The tank is still kind of cloudy, but all of the water parameters are fine.

It looks like his eye has gotten more cloudy. I'm doing a water change on the tank. What else should I do?
