So this guy arrived last Wednesday via mail order, he was in rough shape upon arrival laying on it's side no movement, but once in the tank seemed to color up nicely and become fairly active, but he has these sores on his sides and his snout/mouth looks entirely crusted over along with one cloudy eye....all other fish in the tank seem to be 100% OK.
What could be going on, how can I treat it?

the original pics were over the weekend, this is taken this morning. It looks to be getting worse.

Welcome to Reef2Reef!

It looks like that fish sure went through a lot during shipping! I see the damaged eye, plus what appear to be bacterial lesions.

There really isn't any treatment you can use in your display tank, do you have a treatment tank you can use?

How many tangs (surgeonfish) do you have in your reef tank?
