Try feeding mysis shrimp and brine shrimp. Didn't eat even a bit. I am really worried.

Get a pipette and fill it with brine shrimp, try and get it near his mouth and slowly squeeze them out?

Definitely worth a shot IMO!

Did that. As soon as the brine shrimp touched the mouth, he freaked out and went under rocks after hitting a few of them.

Thanks for all your guys help.

I talked to a LFS he have agreed to keep my chromis in his hospital tank until it's better. It's new store but the guy seems to know alot and have kept reef tanks for years.
Hope this saves his life..

Today was great.
I have taken my chromis to two fish stores before they just say he's going to die so buy 2 new ones. They just didn't care for the fish's life.

I went to Puppies Fish and Critters used to be fish world new owner Jim is great. Tested my water from seperate container it was great.

Than fish help started.
Jim Used flashlight to see if he responds to light. Ya blind for sure. Put in vitamins and amino acid powder to entice eating. Put in flakes, didnt eat, than pellett food, didn't eat than blood worms, still didnt eat. Than Used API stress coat after about 10 mins fish started eating a bit than he put in bit of brine and mysis shrimp, finally fish eat bit of those. I was so impressed I have never seen a store owner so passionate to take 2 hours on dying fish and all for free. Great right??But no he topped that. He offered to keep the fish in his hospital tank and treat it since it was eating now. I happily said yes!

Now I can go see him everyday. Jim said if eating continues eyesight will come back. I asked him how much you going to charge me he said NOTING! he said he will be happy if the fish lived. Just consider his store when I need something.
That's for sure.

PFC will be my new favorite store.

Wow, that's really cool.

I wish we had stores like that around here - hope your Chromis does well now!

And good on you for doing all you could to help him, some people would have just given up by now, I'm glad you didn't and all that work is paying off!
