What could be causing an oscar fish to have a cloudy eye?

Over the last several days I have noticed that my Oscar fish has a very cloudy eye, I am concerned that he can not see out of the eye.

Most likely it is due to unclean water. I would change about 50% of the water and give the tank a good cleaning. As well as feed some frozen mysis.

The first cause is physical damage or maybe the quality of your water is very poor. Nutritional deficiencies and bacterial infection are two more main causes for cloudy eye.

Cloudy eye is usually caused by a secondary infection. You can treat it with epsom salts. 1 table spoon per 10 gallons of tank water. Also try a total water and filter change.

Your oscar could have a cloudy eye because one of the other fish bit it or it could have a fungis.
