    ph is good

    ammonia is my worry, should be 0, anything above 0.25 is not good

    Waterchange and Seachem Prime/Stability sounds like a good idea.

    Gotta say it's pretty damn unusual for a wrasse to get popeye. They're usually extremely disease resistant. Also makes me think ammonia spike...

    The prob with a waterchnage and ammonia is that a ph shift can change nh4 and nh3 levels

    I don't recommend a water change unless ph is exactly the same, yes there is good chance for recovery
