Coral Beauty Questions?????
Hello all, I have a Coral Beauty, that has been behaving different the last few days.
It has been hiding in its hole in the rock
I found it in there upside down as if sleeping on its back, also on its side, and nose down.
It has some rough looking fins, and scuffs on the side of its body just underneath its fins. Also a few pieces missing from the back fins. This fish does come out to eat and swim. It swims find and does all things normal except the wierd sleeping/hiding things.
This silly little fish has been "cuddling" up to the green emerald crab, and I believe that crab has been taking nips at it. If you can describe a fish as a lover this is the one, it began this behavior with the hermit crabs then moved onto the emerald crab. It has tried with the snail also, but apparently was unsatisfied.
My water levels are all good, temp is fine, all looks good, my clowns are all good. Nothing wrong with any other creature in there. SOOOO, do you think this little fish is just recovering from the ill treatement from the crab? Is there something else I should be aware of? Do you think I should take crab back to store, ( I am thinking hard about it as it killed my other crabs) any suggestions or advice would be great.
Also at this point I do not have a sick tank so have to work with what I have at the moment.
