Hi all,
I have lost a flame angel and blue hippo tang in the last week. Now my gem tang looks horrible. Anyone know what could be causing this?!?!?

Oh no - looks bacterial but also associated with water quality and diet
What is your:
Ammonia
Nitrate
Salinity
Ph

what are you feeding?
minimum diet:

spirulinabrine shrimp
Mysis shrimp
Small plankton
Formula flake and frozen
LRS herbivore diet
Nori seaweed basted with garlic

add garlic extract and selcon vitamins to foods 2-3X per week

It would be remarkable to me for a bacterial infection to be that devastating with multiple fish involved. Any recent additions? A couple of other guys may be able to help. @HotRocks , @4FordFamily

My clown and cardinal are doing ok.... i put him on a qt tank with copper, but I think it is too late. I am guessing he will pass by dinner. Sooo was!
