I tried to get a picture of him last night but I just couldn't get a good one. He is a little lethargic; however, he seems to be a little better. I will keep observing him and if I can snap a pic I will.

Grossly inaccurate. I have seen diseases such as Uronema, bacterial infections, and even Crypt. kill fish in under 24hrs. Take an ammonia reading, but unless the tank isn't cycled there shouldn't be Nh3 rises with fish additions in an established tank.

I have been taking ammonia reading every day since the first fish died. and the ammonia has been reading 0. I did have a low nitrate reading of 5 or 10, but after a water change that became o also. I am watching my fish like a hawk and hopefully this passes. is there anything I can do to entice my wrasse to each he hasn't eaten in 2 days.

Try feeding garlic soaked food but do so sparingly cause you don't want to add more load to the system. A couple days without food isn't a big deal, target feed a couple garlic soaked pellets or mysis and hopefully he will come around.
