all my 4 have gotten this today
check my thread i put up
white stuff covering their eyes
i took myself up to loacal pet world
the aquatic man said its a lot of bacteria in the water
rotting food usually causes it etc etc
so he gave me some anti bacteria fluid
he said put some of this in and it should clear it up
and take carbon out the filter while ur treating them.
im hoping my 4 are ok soon

A power head lodging a bubble behind an eye ? thats the strangest thing i've heard . It's more than likely just a scratch. will heal. my reds have had them.
and to answer your question. Your tank is 3 days old. Meaning it's has not been cycled properly. Meaning your experiencing a cycle.
What all your fish have developed is cloudy eye. It's a result of poor water quality because you have a completely new uncycled tank.
Could you post your Parameters ? Your going to need to find someone with Media that has mature bacteria to get your tank going or , im afraid your
fish are going to die.
We're just , two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl , year after year.....
