My x-mas wrasse was all over the place never stopping, that is why I got rid of him. Knocking over my corals ect....
how do you acclimate your fish? when a fish dies shortly after you introduce it to the tank it could be the acclimation process.
What about your Nitrate? with a large fish load like yours in a 55 this would/could be a problem. Any skimmer, fuge?
Check NO3 ASAP and if over 40 you have a problem, water change ASAP to get it down.
