Probably the aro rubbed the eye against the glass panel, thus causing the eye to be cloudy

Hi Patclay.
Do you know why do Aro rub his eye against the glass panel??
Is there a way to prevent them to do so?

Regards and thanks.

I am not sure what's the cause. Could be lighting issues.

Hi Patclay
My tank has 4 lights (2 white and 2 red) usually I switch on 1 pair at the time and rotating few hours once. Not sure does this too much for him?

Hi Streetsmart73.
I will try to capture video tonight and post it.

Hi Homester.
I estimate he around 11"-12" length.
Usually I added 2-3 teaspoons each time I change water (tank 5' - water level around 5' x 2' x 1.5').

if my memory serves me right, my min min, red aro was very inquisitive and tend to swim very close to the side of the tank whenever I came close to its tank when it was about the same size of yours.

As such, rubbing one of its eyes against the glass that may look "cloudy" too.

Maintain good water parameters helped clearing up

Thank you for the clip.

Try more frequent wc, say alternate day, reduce feeding & as what bro hom's recommendation on salt.
