Blind Lightning Wrasse?

Recently i had ammonia go up in my tank. slightly but its under control now. all fish were fine except my lightning wrasse. it seems to be not swimming as much now. (it used to be swimming back and forward all the time) it hides a lot. and when it does swim it seems to be crashing into the live rock and such. also it isnt eating. help please??

Hmmm, has he eaten yet?
Do you soak your food in garlic guard?

You can just get a nice piece of garlic from your LFS...if not, you could try something like Seachem Garlic Guard , sometimes it will entice finicky eaters to come out and feed (no scientific proof) They have seen that fish fed with garlic are not as suceptable to re-infection.

thanks for the help. but he was never a finicky eater until the ammonia spike he was always first to be fead. i woke up this morning and i seen him swimming slowly back and forward just under the surface of the water. swimming a lot better but kinda to one side. had a look and one eye seems to be buldging a bit. still wouldnt eat though and he looks like he is nearly gone

That sounds like ammonia poisoing. Can you QT him and lower the pH below 7 slowly?
