Step back and take a deep breath. There is nothing you can do about it so you may as well put it on the shelf till you get home. What other fish do you have in your DT?

What`s done is done. You`ll have to deal with it. You`ll need to make sure you let your family members know that this is your tank and not to do anything unless you know about it. the safety of your tankmates depends on it.

I wouldn't mess with salinity. There's no evidence keeping salinity at anything less than 1.026 does any good...unless of course you are doing hypo and dropping it all the way to 1.009 to kill parasites.

Thanks for all the advise guys. Sunday I scooped him out of the tank and took him back to my LFS and they gave me credit on him. I guess the final straw was when he started flashing up against the rocks. I'll be keeping a close eye on the other fish for now. Thanks Capt, Melosu, and Thincat for all the help. As always you guys rock

It still sucks that that fish is pretty much doomed. Unless they know anything about what is wrong with the fish hes gonna die. I feel bad for the humu humu
