Treatment of HLLE is empirical and relies on the elimination of any potential stressors. Water quality should be improved if necessary, overcrowding reduced, and a balanced and varied diet should be fed.

There is no singular cause for Hole-In-The-Head Disease, and there are some species of fish that seem predisposed to it, such as Tangs and Surgeonfish. Although occasionally caused by a parasite (Hexamitid spp.), it is not commonly found with most infections. Many stressors, such as poor water quality or diet, can start the chain of events that lead to Hole-In-The-Head Disease.




Other possible causes or influences on the progression of Hole-In-The-Head Disease include:

Nothing can do much I would say do not dose with anything yet keep the tank fallow for 42-75 days. Better the water levels and keep an eye on it

It was a sailfin I think it is possible that he could have killed/stressed out the other tangs a lot can happen when the lights go off
The sailfin? but remember I'm loosing them prior to add this guy 3 weeks ago, what confused me if the film of dust all over the rocks and on the bodies of some of the ones that die already
