My LFS has a lineatus female and rhomboid for sale. Gorgeous fish. $179 and $199 respectively.

Good luck with your wrasse though at this stage it might just be wishful thinking. :-(

Hoping we are all wrong and he makes a comeback but dont get discouraged if he passes, sometimes no matter what we do we cant fix some things that go wrong.

Mr x just had a clownfish pass that was really depressed and stopped eating, X did nothing to get teh clown depressed and he still died.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

this morning I looked and hes still alive YAY!!! but doubtful itll live for much longer. did a big 25% water change last night... all the parameters are perfect but that's the only thing I could think of that may be wrong.... if he doesn't survive atleast I tried everything.

was it just this wrasse or are all fairy wrasses really fragile?

I had the same thought when I lost my Naoko's fairy wrasse. Fairy wrasses that were somewhat hardy were also mean to my clowns which is big no no for me. Tono's and Lubbock's is what I had but took them both back for store credit due to aggression. My favorite was a Solar wrasse that I donated to my LFS after I realized that he would not be ok in a 3ft tank. That's when I really stepped up my due diligence and found that article I posted earlier. Would I buy an expensive wrasse such as Lineatus or Rhomboid? Yes but only after I keep one not so expensive fairy wrasse alive for at least 6 months.

Wish there was more to do to help other than hope that tomorrow your wrasse wakes up really hungry and decides to eat. Otherwise keep your head up. You have done all you could.

hes on his last legs.... he came out and could barely swim and has one cloudy eye..... so took him out into QT

the cloudy eye part scares me. could this be some sort of disease spreading in my tank? i always thought cloudy eye was caused by bad quality water but all parameters are fine and using rodi water.

It is usually water quality, but it can come in tandem with other diseases. It can also be from damage/ injury to the eye. I would try throwing an antibiotic in there. At this point, it sounds too late, but I'm a big fan of trying everything possible. Good luck!

dead..... thanks todd hopefully he just injured his eye, seems all the other fish are doing fine so hopefully there no crazy disease lurking in my fishtank. ive just fed all the fish brine lacing in bioviv daily to up their immune system just incase. if anything else pops up i will have to throw some antibiotics in there.

thanks for all the help guys
