Thanks.

I believe what I'm going to do is remove all of my sand and put the new stuff in. Then rearrange my rocks. Then do my regular PWC on sunday. Keep my water parameters stable for a week or so and then bring in some to my LFS for them to test.

Then restock slowly.

Most likely. LFS gave me the other one for 5 bucks though and he is doing well (knock on wood).

Just saw this and am concerned for
My royal gramma, he was always out and about since I got him a month ago, was eating pellets and frozen brine shrimp but for the last 3 days he is hiding out in a cave under the rock. Doesn't seem to come out to feed. Did get a new yellow clown goby but the royal was acting like this before I hot the new fish. Water parameters are best I h r had as added a skimmer last week. 20g tank with fire shrimp, baggai cardinal, star fish and couple of hermits and snails. All else seems well. Any advice would be welcomed.

I rarely see my royal gramma. And I mean its rare. maybe once a day, sometimes he goes missing for days at a time.
He loves the rocks...

I saw that you said that earlier in the post but my concern is that up until a few days ago he was always out and about for atleast an hour or so and would always be out for food but when I see him in the cave he seems to be panting more than breathing and hasn't been out for food since Saturday. But thanks for this reply as if this is common amongst other people who keep them then I will relax about him.

Anyone any ideas what could be wrong with him. He came out today and was getting blown around by the power head. I have him in quarantine now and just put some food in with him but he is just lying ther and now eating. It won't allow me upload a pic so he is just lying on the bottom and, what can only be described as, panting.
