Cloudy eye how to treat?

I have a female who over the past week has developed a white, cloudy eye.

I am thinking that it was the male who was being a particular snot this week (his idea of flirting is to ram her bodily) that caused it, as the water quality in their tank is excellent and she is otherwise in good health.

I thought it might clear up on its own, but it has gotten slightly worse and I don't want her to lose vision in that eye.

I was thinking separate her out and treat with aquarium salt, but just not sure on what dosage people recommend.

If anyone has any other suggestions I am open to them. It is just looking very ugly at the moment and it is obviously impairing her vision on that side.

I found some info that may be helpful:
  • If a fish has one cloudy eye:
    - Feed a high quality diet, so she gets the nutrients she needs.
    - Reduce bacteria in the tank, to lessen the chance of secondary infection.
    - If the cloudiness is due to injury, there may have a scratch/damage on or near the eye. Treat her as if she has a mild bacterial infection.
    Source: another fish forum, so link not posted. Information was not copied verbatim.
