    Help! Single black spot on fish’s cheek

    Hello, I’m wondering if someone could help me. So I’m doing the tank transfer method for my fish because I’m 99% sure that it got into my saltwater tank. I know it wasn’t velvet, and I know it wasn’t Brook, And they were white spots. I did a freshwater dip and didn’t see anything. This is the...

    Diagnosis Please, What's This Patch on my Tang?

    I've had this guy in quarantine for about a week and noticed this developing a couple days ago. Any clue as to what it is and how to treat? He is eating fine, but every now and then he kinda flex curls to that side, so I think it's agitating him more.

    Tangs, Prionurus Genus

    I love tangs and I would love to have one of every genus eventually. I am wondering what experience people have with the Prionurus genus. I am specifically interested in P. Biafraensis and P. Chrysirus because they are tropical species and smaller. Pictures welcomed!

    Weird tang behavior

    So I got a Kole tang about a week ago. Plump, eating well, zipping around the qt and seems very healthy. He does this weird thing though. Once in awhile, he’ll do this little scoot backwards once or twice, then go back to zipping around. It seems like he only does this when he knows I’m looking...

    Help identifying disease

    Hello, I have had this Gold Rim & Trigger in my tank for a little over a month now. The tang appeared to show ice spots but that seems to have gone away, but now is showing this symptom as well as my trigger. Both are eating, and not scratching on anything in the tank. I was thinking maybe some...

    Does my tang have Ich?

    I am not sure if I am being paranoid or not so I figured I would ask the experts. Tang is not showing any labored breathing, normal eating, no scratching. Seems to be about 5 small bumps under his skin on his side, small but noticeable because I look at him everyday. And like 4 white dots on...

    Why is our Tang hanging out so close to our Firefish?

    Blurry photo attached. I really need to get a phone with a better camera. Our yellow Tang has been hanging out in the corner of the tank with both of our firefish for a few minutes. Is he harassing them? Are they all hiding from the current? Is the Tang confused and thinking he is a firefish?

    Suggestions on treating DD Caribbean Blue

    Felt sorry for this little guy, it looks rough. Opinions on where to begin? 1. Into 30 gal observation tank with live rock, macro algae, sand and pair of small clowns? Fatten it up and observe for 30+ days. 2. Right into ttm? 3. Set up 5 gal qt tank and begin other treatment? It will end up...

    Tang stung by nem? What do I do?

    I have a magnificent anemone that decided to take a walk into my gyre pump last night. I think it may recover but a bunch of it’s tentacles tore off before I noticed.

    Tonight I ran into, without question, one of the strangest things I ever have in all my days keeping fish. I recently finished adding my fish back to the DT after a long fallow period for ich. They’ve been back about two weeks, and tonight I cut the lights off a little early to acclimate a new...
