I’ve had this yellow tang for almost a year and never had any problems. I moved him to a bigger tank about a month ago and he was fine till about 4/5 days ago he stopped eating. And is starting to look skinny. I’ve tried different foods soaked in garlic, nori, red macro algae and still nothing, all other fish are eating fine. Just looking for suggestions before he withers away, thank you.

That’s a tough one. The lack of feeding response is a general symptom and unless tied with some other symptom, doesn’t really give a direction to go to try to fix it.
I’m on my phone and can’t link it for you, but try googling Hemdal Fish Anorexia that should take you to an article I wrote about fish not feeding….

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
