Thanks everyone. I did a small autopsy and pulled out some weird stuff from inside so I'm thinking it was possibly internal parasites. I'm beating myself up because if so that was preventable...weird thing is though he didn't look like he really lost weight. All the other fish in the tank are doing fantastic though.

Yea, its unlikely. My Orchid Dottyback came from Petco and is still being a champ though! I have have several from them that died though. I hate seeing a 10-15 gallon tank loaded with Yellow Tangs, and a dead one in the corner. All about the money these big box stores. I'm glad I have a buddy that recently opened up his own reef & reptile store with a friend of his. Knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. The store seems to be doing very well too. Here is their facebook page just in case you wanna check them out.

Yeah I'll definitely check them out! Yeah I'm not beating on petco, just really don't have any good ones near me. Heck I have 0 good lfs, well I have pacific east but they close before I get off work .

In other news the tangs passing opens up stocking...
I'm getting a leopard wrasse at some point but other than that I want one more small fish. Possibly thinking about trying a yasha goby pair again...

I had an ich episode from the coral beauty I got at petco. In fact, I got my maroon there, but he's always been fine.

Came home with a beautiful leopard wrasse today. Saw him eat frozen and pellets at the store! Can't wait to show he off once she's in the tank

Stupid fish wakes up at 7 am and goes to bed at 7 pm right before I get home from work! She'd better get on a new sleep schedule if she wants food!! Jk I guess I'll have to feed her in the morning, still trying to get a pic as well but man is she beautiful

my coris wrasse is the same way you can set your clocks to him , would love to get a leopard I suddenly became obsessed with wrasses think it's all the coloration they have,
if he senses food in the water he should come out to eat

Sounds cool. I loves leopard wrasses! Wrasses are some of the coolest fish and IME their sleep schedule is like clock work. Cant wait to see em Bribo!
