    Looks like a mucus layer of some sorts could just be cleaning itself, did you feed it before the mucus layer started about a few hours or so.
    does the brain have any visible damage?
    I have a link somewhere, will look for it

    My brain does that if I clean my LR. I think it might be for protecting it or maybe trying to catch something to eat.

    Yes, just ro dipped it and then fed it before the pic. It's weird, too. It's got something in the middle hole with little red legs coming out. Not tentacles. Long little legs. Maybe some sort of shrimp hosting in there?

    It's so small. I'll try to get a pic, next time I feed. All I've seen are long legs coming out, messing with the food.
    I'm betting it may be a small sexy shrimp. If he comes out, I'm sure the wrasse will find him delicious.
