Our Seahorses Tail

A few days ago our young male tigertail seahorse has been acting weird, his tail seems to be injured, he is not curling it up or raping it around the rocks anymore.

Worried he may have touched the heater, Moved the heater to sump. May have hurt in on liverock? He swims when he needs to, barly eating only ate a few peices of mysis shrimp in the last few days. His tip of the tail is going white, looks like its coming apart, peeling?

Going to do waters tests to make sure water gaulity is good, water change tonight, and we are really hoping, we have 2 females in there with him, and a sixline wrasse, also a spanish dancer nudibranch, liverock, and 4 feather dusters. Crabs and snails ofcourse. Its a 26gal bowfront tank. with a ten gal sump soon being upgraded.

Some one help please!!! Is there anything I can do?

Do you think the wrasse may have done it? You really need to get the wrasse out of the tabk either way though... They are too agressive to be kept with docile sea horses and they will eat so quickly they dont allow the horses to get any food. Also, it may be attacking them...

the sixline is s,all no larger then an inch in size she knows there their but we have actualy seen her bug them, swims around them but not to hurt them. She eats on her own, the seahorses get the special treatment. We make sure they eat as we feed slowely frozen shrimp, but he just wont eat

Here he is, you can see the white, and you can see the loss of skin, making the tip of his tail like bone.. We are really worried, anyone help, would tresting the tank with Fuval 2 work will he get through this? Will his tail heel?
