    I noticed this white spot inside the head of one of my glass cats. It's symmetrical and I'm sure it's inside his body and not outside. All the others seem fine, although he seems more aggressive than usual. My 5 glass cats were getting bothered by the busyness of my main tank so I moved them...

The cloudiness around the eye looks to be clearing up, but there has been no reduction in the white spot. I checked the water...
