Hi everyone,

I noticed today that my 11-year-old Cory cat has a small slightly cloudy spot in each eye. Behavior, fin appearance, bony plates, and color vibrancy are all otherwise fine. Her 3-year-old tankmate looks completely normal. Could this be chalked up to old age/are there any visible signs of old age in Cories? Alternatively, I've heard that cloudy eyes can arise from low pH. Just tested and mine's 6.5. Is this a more likely explanation than age?

Thank you for any help!

I wouldn't consider 6.5 to be low pH. Given the age, I'd consider that to be pretty likely the culprit. And good job on keeping her alive and well.
