I know this has been talked about before, but I can't find it anywhere. My Betta has developed cloudy eyes, she seems like she can see ok, but her movements are not as fast and active as before, and she's flaring at me more than before. The only thing I have done differently is started using topfin betta water conditioner. Would this cause this problem? I've also hooked up her tank light.
