You did great. Packing was fantastic. Temps were perfect when arrived. It wasn't scary for me, but I may have refreshed my phone to death tracking them :oops:

A while ago, this homie showed up then disappeared the next day. Apparently, he likes the new lights. Smallest nem in my tank. Beautiful little rainbow.

I also used a pump to dislodge one of my rose anenome that decided to walk into torch island. Last night there was one, today there is two. Super cool.

The Desjardini has been out a lot more this morning than any day before. I just walked by the tank and she was laying on the sand, not doing well. I scooped her up and put her in the sump. I have not seen her eat any time other than peck nori once in about two weeks. . Got a feeling this is going to end in a sad day..

There are no signs of any disease, stress, or injuries.

Thank you. Not sure what can be done. .
How long have you had it?
Out of all fish my puffer had to be acclimated in the dark by itself. Took about a week for it to come out and eat. Was wild caught. Picked him up an hour after he arrived at lfs.
Now I can't get him to stop eating or leave me alone.

Could syringe feeding be an option?

@Eagle_Steve if the fish is already "on the way out" would force feeding be out of the question?

So sorry @Lost in the Sauce....a few days ago we found our 5 year old pink spotted goby in one of the buckets next to the tank.

Our thoughts are with you and the little guy!
This sucks. Both my wrasse decided to carpet surf when I chemicleaned. All fish are in sump now not taking anymore chances. Perfectly fine until then.
