Sorry to tell hes gone. Just take him out and flush them. Next dont get another. I read something about them scientist are still tring to figure out what they eat. They say most of the time when you purchase it its already starving itself.

supposedly they eat micro algae, for the most part they are not even reef safe anyway. I have had him for 6 months of so. Just must be tired of captivity.

Thats good for that linkia star most people Ive talked to didnt know anyone that has keep them for about a month. What I meant by dont know what they eat, they say it might not even eat micro algea as thought. I had one for about 6-7 months and it would eat cucumbers and algea sheets that I feed my tangs.
