REASON FOR WRASSE DYING?

Recommended Posts

yesterday my wrasse was acting fine swimming around and then today I found him lying on the bottom of the tank breathing heavy. It looks like he will die but I would like to know why.

Pics under white would be better. 
 

If it dies then put the body in freshwater for 10 min in a dark container and see if any flukes come off. They will be sesame seed looking. 

 

Fairy wrasse are prone to spinal injuries/death because they are skiddish and freak out and smash into a wall or such. I lost two this way and no longer keep fairy’s because of it.

^^ Agree; I don‘t see anything obvious wrong based on the photos.

The fish died during the day and my dad was the only one home at the time so he went and buried it before I could dip it. I think he may have just ran into a rock and knocked himself out
