Cataracts? Kingsley has cataracts? at five months.

Just noticed that he had light blue in his eyes. I've gotten in close and looked and it looks like cataracts, they're not fuzzy and not clear. Blue disk like shapes lower in the clear portion. He doesn't seem affected otherwise but I started him on standard kanamycin with its required water parameters.

My camera refuses to focus directly on him so no pictures right now.

I brought him home around tax time, so that's only five months that I've had him, has anybody else seen cataracts this young?

He sees fine at all angles not through the light blue bits, front back some down and all up are fine. Makes an instant bee-line for the food.

Treatment with kanaplex is coming along just peachy, dangerous but very effective antibiotic, signs of listlessness and fatigue have almost gone away but still there's those light blue patches.
