Dead watchmen goby

Hi so on Sunday I got a watchmen goby seemed ok when put in tank after it dripped for over 1hr. Then next day looked weak and fin near end off tail look bad and swollen and today the third day it's dead. Could it been ill or something attack it. Water test are fine and fish in tank are two clowns. Cardinal. A clown goby. Royal gramma and Longfin Fairy Wrasse. Thanks for any input

Well, it could have been sick but it sounds more like aggression killed your goby. Between the clowns, gramma, and wrasse it is a guessing game at this point.

Only evidence is wrasse picking at the dead body when first had look to see it

Well that is different than aggression. That's a free meal.

Wrasses are sometimes d*cks, and they do love easy meals... If it was missing its tail i wouldnt put it past the wrasse. I feel like the clownfish wouldnt be able to take the tail, little pieces but not the whole thing
