Pipefish breathing rapidly

« posted: 1 year ago »
Hi all! I have had a dragon face pipefish for over 2 months and he has been great the whole time. All of a sudden he quit eating and swimming around and just sits there breathing rapidly. Water tests fine and nothing changed so I am at a loss what could be causing this. All of the other fish and corals seem fine. Please help! Thanks!

Have you tried a fresh water dip to see if there are parasites in the gills?
Maybe also post on where you might get more pipefish people.
