Welcome to Reef2Reef - though this probably wasn't the first post you wanted to make.

This, to me, looks as though it might have started as an injury, but may have a bacterial issue now. @Jay Hemdal is the top disease expert 'round here these days - hopefully he'll be along to help. He's got a "sticky" thread in the Fish Disease forum that will help you provide the information that'll help him help your wrasse.

Thank you Bruce for the reply unfortunately from when I noticed it to the next morning in the qt tank he did not survive even his first treatment.
