I did a 40 gallon water change tonight on my 135 AFTER catching and consuming (yes you read it right) the Blue DAMsel from hades !

Anyway....my mandarin looked pathetic...he was just laying on the bottom breathing really heavy ! Panting almost ! I know a lot of crap got kicked up after I moved ALL of the rock and such trying to capture the afore mentioned DAMsel !

So I took him out of the main tank and put him in my refugium which is overgrown with all sorts of stuff he'll enjoy eating !


Whats the prognosis....? Should I expect him to be belly up in the morning or is this a normal reaction for them to stress ???


Help !

uhhhmmmmm.....yeah ! I was TRIPLE DOG DARED by my 7 and 9 yr old !!!



I'm just glad I dont own a Grouper or large Moray ! That could have been ugly...since I ate the DAMsel ALIVE !!!

OKAY....so back to the thread topic......The Mandarin Goby WAS sickly looking and breathing heavy !


He's not doing that anymore...cause he's dead ! And NO I did not eat him too !


What did I miss about this fish? Are they THAT susceptible to stress that they would succumb under those conditions ????
