Ouch. :( Did you find the cause of his death? Sorry for your loss!
Thanks! I know it....no I am not a 100% sure, but I think a possible bacterial infection. The fins on both were torn. No aggression in my tank, but they would dart around a lot, wondering if they had gotten injured and developed a bacterial infection from that? Only thing I can think of. That's the frustrating part besides loosing them.

Not sure of the cause, but after living in Hawaii for 18 years and watching them thousands of times, I can say Yellow Tangs are voracious pigs. If there is light, they will be in the shallows feeding. Feed them, feed them, feed them.
