    I have no idea what's going on there. Some type of poisoning seems likely though. If it is not even trying to swim I would say its time is short.

    Can you give us some background on the fish... how long you've had it, what it was eating, tank mates, did this happen all of a sudden or did it develop slowly, ect. More info might help us help you.

    I haven't watched the video so maybe you couldn't make it out but I described most of what you're asking for in the video.

    - 6 days
    - Pellets at the fish store
    - None
    - Swimming on the first day a little and then on day 2 after the lights came out it started.


    Couple more threads of this unknown issue:

    Sorry, I watched the video... but with the sound muted! (wife and kids are sleeping).

    Do you have an anemone? Sometimes wrasses are funny and will just lay around. Looks like it was stung by an anemone or something to me.
