This morning when I wakeup to see my tank's temp has shot up to 32.8 C!! Then there's some white stuff on my largest (1.5"
) P's eye. It doesn't look like pop eye...just soem stuff on the top. It's white and not really transparent.

I did a cold water change, now temp is aroud 31.3 C. He was fine all along. One thing I did yesterday was added some salt, not aquarium salt though. It's cooking salt / sea salt, no not those table salts.

What could it be ??
That's the only kind of salt I have right now, should I add a little more?

Help

My Piranha has the same thing right above the eye, but it looks more like a contact lens. Its transparent, and I have no idea what it is. Your help will be appreciated, thanks!

I dont know about adding more, however table salt is ok to use. we went round and round about what kind of salt to use. And table salt is ok.
