Something is going out of the hole. Do you think I should just glue it?

I’m guessing it’s what has caused the hole in the flesh. I’d probably dip the coral, to see if you can kill whatever it is, and give the chance for the coral to recover.

Good day today ☺️. Two bristle worms removed by hand. not as effectif as an arrow crab 🦀 but good enough to remove sloppy bristle  worms.

Still didn't dip my trachyphylia 😬. I am waiting for water change day to do it.

Realy cool. It's a fairly newly described species lithoscaptus semperi that aparently inhabits only free living lps polyps like trachs. They dont usualy kill the hosts. I'm guessing you may have two in there. Maby a pair. Looks like there could be something in that second hole.

I hope he hasn't developed edema. The goby has no trouble swimming or eating (it eats a lot because the tank is overfeed for the corals and the mantis 🤦‍♂️). He has been like that for some time now 🤷‍♂️.

It don't seems to be equally bloated.

Furthermore, when it swims, its "ass" seems to go up 😬.

 

Here close-ups of the YCG:

@Humblefish, could you give me a confirmation that this look like a bloated that could be a intestinal blockage or swim bladder disorder, intestinal parasites or infection.

 

Thanks in advance.

Can you see a clearly defined gas bubble that you could lance air out of?

Thank you for your response and your link. I am not exactly sure but I do see something looking like a gas bubble. I will monitor my fish, and act accordingly once I'm more sure of the diagnosis.

 

It looks like I will need to invest in a Qt setup 🙄.

My trachyphyllia is degrading every days 😑.

 

It's pretty frustrating considering his price and his supposed easiness.

And I cannot put it on the vendor since the two lordhowensis are doing great 🤦‍♂️.

 

Could it be due to the fact that the tank is filled with lordho confined with the fact that I don't use carbon?

Today, I am starting a two 10~15% water change a week schedule.
We will see if the goby and trachyphyllia will start to get better. 

 

Please, make it work 🤞🥲. I don't want to do a surgical operation on a fish under 3cm (~1.2 ").

I have 5 trachs with a pile of lords no issues but I do run small amount of carbon. I have ocasionaly had a new specimen can do well for a few weeks before withering away for no apparent reason. The ones that stay healthy are extreamly hard to kill. How is your alk big swings in that can affect them. I see where you had some recession on some lords a while back that could also be related. Running a bit of carbon couldnt hurt. 

The trach looks a bit pale too possably bleaching a little  reacting to the sudden change in lighting in your tank from the place it was being kept before. Putting it in a low light lower flow area may help it.
