It`s definitely a torn foot. I `m pretty sure there is not much hope. Keep a close eye on him and dont let him break up in your tank. And a water change never hurts

Well, the water does not stink (yet) but its mouth is open wider than before. It looks really gross.

It looks like its insides are starting to come out its mouth. And the rabbit fish is picking at the "dead" parts. Should I take it out now?

I think you should. He looks very damaged to me.

Ok. Well, I took him out and put him in a bucket of tank water with a heater just in case. I am very disappointed. I don't think I will try this again for a long while

Sorry Meredith. Sometimes there is nothing you can do. Sounds/looks like someone wasn't careful in moving him. They are very easily damaged.

Did you just get that? Is it possible the LFS damaged it when they bagged it up?

I just got it the other day. I think he was careful. He just scooped it out and put it in the bag. It wasn't attached to any thing. The funny thing is, he was warning me about not trying to detach it if it was on a rock. It never made any attempt to move around in my tank at all.
Anyway, I learned my lesson.

Sorry to say, but it sounds like its on its way out, I lost one that did what yours is doing, the white wisps sound like it's tissue is desintigrating, i know its difficult, but i would remove it before it pollutes the rest of the tank.
