    My yellow watchman goby is laying down on its side on the live rock! It was absolutely fine! It's fins are still moving. I don't know if it's going to die or not! It's also next to a tiny aiptasia anemone! What's wrong?!?!

    Well, I'm not a saltwater person, but you didn't list any parameters or anything that would help figure out what happened.
    Please list:
    Tank mates
    Newest addition and when it was
    How long you had the fish
    Additional symptoms
    Should help salty people help you figure out what happened :)

    The watchman goby was the newest addition.
    I've only had it for less than a day.
    Laying down on its side. Possibly dead. Removed it from tank because hermit crab "Pealy" was trying to eat him (he thought he was dead)
