    We recently got a leopard wrasse and it's been fine swimming around and eating but today it's floating around barely swimming and just being blown all over by the current. I can see it's gills moving.

    I dont know what to do. It looks like the fish is suffering. It's not my tank and my boyfriend is at work so he can't do anything.

    How long has your tank been running for? How many other fish are in there? Is it the only wrass in the tank , often people try add more than one wrass in a small tank and this results in the weaker one being harrased to the point of exhaustion . you could try and catch it and place it in the sump or in a container where it might be Abel to recover ,but being blown around in the current it won't last long.
    You should get your water tested at a pet store and post the parameters on this thread so that we can assist you also a bit more info on the tank would help
    Perhaps a PIC or two as well
