What kind of wrasse is it, a Pinkface Wrasse or Bird Wrasse? Looke like they both will eat meaty foods, as well as live clams, crustaceans, and worms, so they might be munching on those when you are not looking.

What kinda lighting you got? How's your nitrate levels? 2 months, white film at the top and no skimmer yet, I'd wait a bit for corals until you get those things under control. Plus that's a lot of fish in 2 months IMO. I'd wait til things settle down a bit and get consistent (water readings).

I'm not sure what that is.

Keep the water parameters good and see after his next molt. He should grow them back.

"doing the bacon" as in: he was bouncing all over the place and twiching. so the legs do grow back? I hope so. he's always leaning to the right. i always think he's gonna fall in his side then die.

Hmmm, that happened to my fire shrimp, he didn't make it, sorry to tell you that. I still can't explain what happened to him.
Is he eating?
I would suggest putting a small spong on the intake of the ph to keep your critters safe. Mine never got stuck to a ph, he may have already been sick and is weak.
