    Figured I'd share a couple pictures of the black cap aka captain jack sparrow. He is very hard to get pictures of! Loves his black worms and mysis.

    OK, that does it. You're now my "go to" whenever someone has a fish with a swim bladder problem. :D

    Have you had success with fairy wrasses whonget this? I am not sure what to do with my new rhomboid who appears to have developed a swim bladder issue. If decompression is the source can the venting still work?

    Do you have a picture? How long have you had the fish?

    I have not performed venting on this fish before... Wrasses are more sensitive to stress and not as hardy. I would make sure that if you perform the procedure it be done right and his qt tank be very clean with the right set up for him. I'd also recommend to have a range of medications with access to new salt water quickly.

    I was told and now believe he has a spinal injury and not a swim bladder issue (he can control his buoyancy even though he does swim vertically or upside down now)
