    Yellow Tang Hiding

    I put this in the newbie section since it's probably a stupid newbie question. I just finished my QT period. Matched salinity and temperature of the QT to my DT, and added my yellow tang directly in. He looked a bit distressed upon entry to the DT and has no gone into hiding in the rocks. Is...

    Thin Yellow Tang (Video)

    Hello All - About a year ago I had to move out of my home and put my 90G in storage. In the meantime, I set up a holding tank for my yellow tang and corals. The yellow tang has never really been on the fat, heavy side but always ate anything I put in the tank. The tang is not large and has been...

    Is this Ich, Flukes or something else?

    I've been recently posting about my yellow tang in QT who has been stressed out for the last week or so. I just did a 10% water change (temp and salinity match). Following the guidance of some helpful members on this forum, his stress has gone down. I've kept all lights off, added more Nori to...

    H2O2 vs Ich, via nightly dosing in display experiment.

    H2O2 vs Ich, via nightly dosing in display experiment. I recently bought some fish and snails from Harry’s Marine Life in LA. My fish went into my H2O2/TTM hybrid QT set up. The snails I basically dumped right in my display. I know I shouldn’t have done, but I was rushing. I usually do some...

    Spontaneous Stress in QT

    I'm in the final stages of my QT for my Yellow Tang and Lyretail Anthias. They have been readily eating medicated food (GC+Focus+Mysis and Brine Shrimp Mix+Garlic) with ample appetites. I keep a pvc pipe with nori attached to it since my Tang isn't particularly good at finding nori on a veggie...

    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...

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?
