    If he's eating and acting normal just heave them. It's usually a sign of injury or infection, either way it can heal on its own. There is medication sold specifically for it but, there is no data that proves it actually helps at all.

    +1 bl1 I recently had the exact same thing with my six line wrasse. Read it's usually a sign of irritation if it's only 1 eye. After about a week it just went away. Hope the same for you. :)
