Foxface in trouble

My foxface is acting sooo odd this morning. He was great last night. He is either just free floating in the current and then swims a little or he is leaning on the rocks. He hasn't fallen over or lays on his side though. He also didn't eat this morning. I have looked at him all over and there are no signs of trauma or white spots. How can I tell if he is really sick and what can I do about it if he is?

He looks extremely thin. I doubt he got that thin overnight, what are you feeding? He kinda looks like he's wasting away to me poor guy

I alternate mices and brine shrimp. He eats very well normally. He hasn't changed size or gotten thinner since I got him a week ago.

Nope as he was one of the few fish I added to my rank since it was new. Everyone else is doing wonderful. He has been wonderful and full if life. Ears like a champ until this morning. Ok so I saw him last chasing the clown fish and yellow tang at midnight and he was fine :-( how could I have starved him?

He needs other things to eat. I keep a seaweed strip in almost constantly and he'll graze on it all day. Brine shrimp have barely any nutritional value. That fox face NEEDS vegetation.

Definitely needs some veggies in his diet. +1 on the seaweed strips. Foxface are herbivores and need lots of veggies.
