    Cloudy eyes are usually cuased by poor water quality. I would try doing a few good water changes and then run some tests on ammonia and nitrates and nitrites.

    poor water quality, but since it just got over ich, I would say it might be a secondary bacterial infection..

    he got rid of the ich but then i started to see his eyes cloudy but their starting to go away slowly but hes getting better

    I have a large naso. The males have lyres on there tails. They dont show up till the fish gets to about 6" or a lil bigger. Heres my naso. Bad picture sorry. Best i can get with my phone. You can see his lyres on the top and bottom of his tail. Like streamers. Females dont have these.
