    Coral beauty has been acting funny since the day I got it. Hiding in the rocks and only coming out at night. I added a couple other fish and it started coming around. It was eating great until a couple days ago it decided to lay down in the rocks. It's stomach got really bloated but it laid in the rocks for 2 days breathing and moving it's tail. What could this be??

    Hard to say.

    For the future... when a fish first starts going downhill is when you should be proactive about the situation. At this point (no matter what it is) there is a high chance he's too far gone.

    He has been goofy since the first day. No spots, he was eating fine then he decided to give up the ghost. Anyone see bloating like that though? I've never seen it

    It could be parasites.

    We have some "Medic" solution water conditioner from Polyplab. Has anyone tried this product? They boast a reef safe parasite treatment. I think I'll give it a shot to see if I can lick any future fish loss.
