i moved Lulu into the ten gallon community tank 3 weeks ago. She's been so much happier with the room, and been acting normally. This morning I got up and fed her, didn't notice anything different. When I got home from a Bat Mitzvah I noticed these white patches on her eyes. She swam to the side, and I saw paled scales and slightest of dents.I suspect it's columnaris because of the dent in front of dorsal, pale scales, and white patches on eyes. Then again, I'm no expert on diseases at all. I don't know how this happened so quick... I just need some help. Thanks.

Sorry the first pic is blurry, but you get the general idea of how the white covers up half of her eye. She seems to see fine, she follows my finger around the glass.

Update: Last night moved her to 1 gallon hospital, started 100% water changes with Prime. Can't get my hands on aquarium salt until Tuesday!
The gray areas on her head haven't spread, and she still has the spots on her eyes. Her eyes aren't cloudy, it just looks like she has a piece of paper on her eye or something of that sort.
She's still acting feisty and normally, which confuses me. On the Diseases sticky, it said she should be clamped and lethargic, which is the opposite for her. She's flaring at plants and even me, and showing off her finnage. No other fish in the community tank are showing symptoms.
