sick fish

Went on vacation had boyfriend (who knows how to care for my tank) take care of my tank. Came home and saltwater was at 1.028. Put fresh water in have it back down to 1.025. My goby looks very very sick. The water had evaporated down so low. It was bad. I have the water levels back to normal. What else can i do to save my poor fish?

How long have you had it? Was it okay prior to leaving? What was it being fed while you were gone and is it eating now? Doesn't seem like a spike in salinity for a short period would do too much.

If you can see them, it is most likely not a parasite. It's been a few days since your last post, any update? I'm a little curious what they were. If fish, that's awesome!!

Do you have enough pods for him to eat? He might be starving.

Yes all mandarins lose there color at night it helps them blend in since they sleep wherever they want to.
