Hey guys, I just received a raidiant wrasse and took him out of the bag, he was freshly shipped overnight. The seller said it was perfect before he shipped it out. I opened the bag and was shocked. It had a swollen gut,was very discolored, and can’t swim right. I need advice as soon as possible. I have it in a bucket with an air stone, heater, and general cure.

White light pics and/or video may help out the experts. Also good if you have to try and get reimbursed.

Radiant wrasses are very delicate. I think more so then a leopard or tamarin. Hopefully it pulls through. I want one myself but will only get from a lfs to know it was shipped well.
