    Apisto Eye Injury?

    Hello all, I'm new to the apisto world, and bought my first pair of super-reds today. Upon returning home, I found that the male had an eye injury (see attachment). It looks a bit swollen, and intensely cloudy. He's quite young, maybe 1 inch. Is there a proper course of action to rectifying...
