if you are having trouble catching the fish try removing half the tank water, the corals and rock will be fine for a few minutes out of water. Consider it a large water change lol

Then put the fish in qt and treat with either hyposalinity or copper.

Good luck

Try feeding it mashed up garlic or soaking your fish food with garlic. Worked a treat with my clowns.

Well that answers a question for me. I bought some marine flakes that has garlic in it and I wondered what the benefit was. The fish seem to love it.

It also helps to jump start a fishs appetite. Good for new fish that arent wanting to eat

The benefit of garlic is very questionable and really does not have much science behind it. Its never been proven to boost immune system and its never been proven as an appetite stimulant, if fact many people report quite the opposite.

Many foods now contain garlic because of well fed hype over the years. There is a demand for it because of this, and aquarists are buying up garlic products. As of currently garlic is brightly labeled on many bottles with many claims to entice buyers.

Personally i have used garlic but ive noticed in my own blind tests, not apparent differences in feeding behavior between frozen mysis and garlic soaked frozen mysis. Just saying.

Think about how often you hear about garlic and you will realize some of the hype thats behind it.
