He went missing today and I thought he was hiding or jumped out. he managed to get into my hob and my friend helped me find him. I should have left him in there but I was worried so I got him back in the tank, I don't know if the other fish are going to pick on him because he is hurt. I know it sounds dumb but he has been a favorite of mine and is one of my most social fish.. Unhappy if anyone has any ideas on how to help him heal if I can separate him again or anything I can do please let me know! Call or text at 801 719 0145

It's too early to call. I may try later.
I would use Garlic Oil and a little overfeeding to prevent parasites and infection from taking advantage of a hurt fish. See complete information in the Reefkeeping Tips below "Secrets of adding new fish, fish training and the miracle of Garlic Oil."
Otherwise, as the tank is fed a little more, aggression will be reduced and the fish will heal.

If you don't already have one, then the best thing you could do for your fish is place a cover over the top of your tank so he doesn't do it again or actually make it to the carpet.Smile
