HI, I am new to this board and I would appreciate if anyone has any feedback. All my measurements are good.
Ammonia = 0
Nitrates = 15 ppm
Salinity = 1.023
I put the fish in last Saturday. He was a little skiddish and build his little house under one of my huge fossilized rocks. I can't see inside his little place but I know he was poping his head out once and awhile as I would watch him very closely. No today at lunch I finally see him out and I was all excited... but after I approached the tank... I was shocked.. he was upside down... just like the picture that I put up.... if you look at the picture he has some red patches near his tail but all of his color is still there... he will grasp a big gulp of water and then convulse like a snake bashing into the rock. I have no idea what happened.... anyone have any idea? This guy was sifting so much sand at the store that I thought he was the healthiest.... He has his full color so obviously he isn't too stressed... but then again... Hi tankmates are :1 yellow tang, 1 damsel, one porcupine puffer, 1 Fermosa Wrasse and a few snails. He doesn't have any sores or wounds but the red patch looks like his veines....
