I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow so I'm scared that if he dies, by the time I get ba

Okay so today I haven't seen my six line wrasse at all. So I moved a few rocks around and there he is, lying on the substrate not swimming, he looks healthy...
My parameters are all at 0..
Problem is, I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow so I'm scared that if he dies, by the time I get back, an ammonia spike would have destroyed my tank. Any advice?

do you have a quarantine tank? how long is the vacation? and do you have someone who is going to be looking after your fish?

Nope no quarantine tank, I've had the six line wrasse for 7 months... Has been healthy since.. All other fish in the tank are healthy.. No one can look after it... The vacation is 7 days. Going up north to a chalet.

I went on leave and lost 5-6 snails and ammonia never got too high. Should be alright if he does die. How big is your tank?

I want a 6 lined wrasse, but haven't gotten one. About to transfer and its hurricane season. Only have 1 damsel and about 7 colonies of corals. Haven t bought much since hurricane Isaac. Lost everything but a few corals. Bought 3 damsels and 2 died. I usually try to scoop out dead things, but can't while I'm on leave.

I also lost a clown down the sump. Couldn't find it and ammonia didn't even show.

Oh wow. That sucks, sorry to hear about that! I haven't lost a fish yet *knock on wood*. Pretty surprised about it too lol because I never had a lot of experience with aquariums.. I kinda just went straight into saltwater tanks ahaha.
