Hopefully not velvet again

I have an update, our coris made it and seems to be growing his tail back. He does spend most of the morning sleeping but afterwards he’s swimming around with the pack. Appetite is still minimal, but he does eat mysis shrimp. I noticed stringy white poop so I am going to go through another round of general cure.

Overall we went through 2 full courses (so 4 doses of furan 2), kanaplex twice and metroplex twice. I have since introduced a clown and a white tailed bristletooth and don’t seem to bother him much.

I plan on keeping him in observation through Christmas or least two weeks after his tail fully grows back (hopefully).


Thank you for all the advice you’ve given me along the way, it’s been very much appreciated

Is there anything besides live copepods you'd recommend feeding the yellow coris wrasse? He will bring food into his mouth, take 2 chews, and spit it out.. he's getting pretty thin, but swims actively when awake. He now spends most of the day sleeping or laying down and comes out for a few hours in the evening. I've tried frozen mysis shrimp but he just swims past them.

How big is he? Smaller wrasses sometimes prefer calanus, roe and other small meaty foods.

no more than two inches tops, we bought some tigger pods earlier tonight that I’m going to try and introduce later tonight while lights are off to see if it sparks anything.
