Had these juvi peocock cichlids for a month now water parameters are all good ( 0 0 10) but I woke up and saw this on one of the more dominant males. His eye has a white mark and looks not as clear as the other, but not by much, I doesn't look swollen either (maybe just a wound?). If you have any ideas what it could be please let me know thanks

It's hard to see in the pick but sounds like he may have scraped it.

Mine do this from time to time, and I haven't had permanent damage or lost eyes.
Just keep your water super clean and maybe bump up the wc's for a couple weeks. Little guy will be a ok!

Most minor eye scratches and abrasions heal as long as waters real clean, how's he eating?

Eating well it looked like a scrape or something to me but I just didn't want to take chances and have it end up being the start if popeye or something still doing more wc s can never hurt. Maybe some melafix too?
Sorry about the bad pictures my camera isn't very good and the fish are too dang fast.
Thanks
