I bought 3 anthias about a month ago. They all seem to be female and none have changed to a male yet.

I’ve noticed past two weeks one is singled out and is a lot more skinnier that the rest. At night he sleeps in the corner of the tank on his own. His fins are not looking to great either.

is there anything I can do to make his life happier?

I’ve attached a video.

Yeah looks like it's in pretty rough shape. I'd get it separated quickly, is it eating?

and just FYI, a single anthias is still called an anthias, not an anthia.
Yeah, I’ve noticed another one looking a down as well. Been watching the tank and have a feeling it’s my lemon peel doing the bullying.

he’s eating ok but doesn’t got mental for the food like the other fish do.

tried to catch him but wasn’t having it.
