Well I recently moved both my bettas into a much bigger tank (10 gallons split down the middle with a divider) with a heater, a filter, and tons of plants for them to play in. My crowntail betta's previous bloat seems to have gone down a bit, and both bettas are much more active than they once were. However, my crowntail seems to have developed a new problem. I noticed tonight while feeding him that he has one cloudy white spot at the bottom of each of his eyes. They almost look like cataracts, but I'm worried he might have some sort of infection?

Sorry about the bad photo quality, all I have is the camera on my phone. The spot moves around when he moves his eye, so it's attached to the outside of the lens.
