Iridesence Starting To Cloud Eye

I've heard about this problem with iridensence colored bettas, and well, I've noticed a little bit of iridensence staring to cloud Tug's eyes! He still seems to be making it out a-o-kay, since it's just on the ridge here and there. I assume there is nothing to be done about this BUT! I have a small bit of hope that someone knows how to atleast slow it down, and help him! He is my little rescue baby, and I love him dearly!

Come to think of it, my boy might be starting too...that would explain why he seems to have trouble aiming for food. Any advice you get would help me out too. ;)

I posted this same thing fairly recently..and it is puzzling, my Sapphire, who is about 6 mos..and is a rescue..just started showing that eye color change, and I was told he may be going blind, so I test him daily to see if he can see his food, and some days he does fine others not as much..so I am not sure, but his eye is that blue blurry looking color..I thought it was just eye color change, but still not sure..

If he is having trouble eating his food you can use a toothpick to hold it for him~

If you have filter, shut it off, it's terribly difficult when it's moving around..
