    We have a healthy tang who was treated for four weeks with copper, was treated with prazipro, then watched in observation tank. He is a skiddish fish, so I asked for help putting him in display. I did not witness the transfer, but I know it involved a net. Right after the transfer we noticed two pale spots on his side which he did not have before. He seems very happy in his new home. Should I prophylactically treat him?

    Post pictures if you can. Might just be marks from him bumping into the rockwork as he gets used to his new home.

    Is it more like a white discoloration?
    Mine got that when I first added her to my dt and it was due to the PB showing her who the boss is and then it went away after a couple of days, so my guess would be either the net, other fish aggression or it scraped it on a rock or something; mine is very active swimming all day grazing between all the rocks in the tank. As long as its eating and acting normal I would just keep an eye on it and see how it does just like Humblefish suggested.
    They tend to be very skittish and shy fish specially when first acquired. Mine didnt eat for over 4 weeks while in qt and would hide as soon as it would see me coming from across the room. now its out in the open grazing all day long in the display.

    Back to normal color. He seems comfortable in his new home. Thanks for the help.
