Could have flukes in the eye. Do a 5 min FW dip and see if any fall out:

If you see flukes, you'll need to treat with Prazipro 2x 7 days apart.

Sounds like the one tang is blind and nothing you can do will correct it. If you notice head twitching or shaking or what I would describe as yawning then I would suspect flukes like Humblefish mentioned

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs

Current Tank Info: 625g, 220g sump, RD3 230w, Vectra L1 on a closed loop, 3 MP60s, MP40. Several QTs
