    i see from previous posts youve had white spot problems before. And around two weeks ago you had phosphate issues.
    Is the white spot on your purple tang still from the previous (two,three?) whitspot incidents or is it new?
    Also..have you sorted out your phosphate/other parameteres yet?

    huh?? think we need pictures.
    How many tangs do you now have in your 67 gallon tank? i lost count.

    going to sound like an @#$@ now...but i see in previous threads you never mentioned if you ever got the problem sorted out. In future, if people have taken time to help you with your problems, at least have the courtesy to let everyone know what has happened. It will aslo make solving future problems alot easier.

    PLease post all parameter, current stock, pics etc so that we can get the fish healthy as soon as possible.

    do you supplement food with garlic? fish sweat out garlic in their pores, which whitespot hates. it also boots their immune system.

    however that is merely treating the symptom. once the whitespot bacteria is in the tank you will battle to get rid of it; check your water prams as well.

    good luck!

    Hi

    First of all its purple, not pourple. Secondly we have asked for pics to help you. Thirdly your explanations make no sense at all. Fourthly attitude wont help

    Im confused...
    what happened to the goldrim, the regal and the yellow tang? Are the small pair in the picture new yellow tangs?
    you treated those in the qt, right? Whas the purple tang in there the same time as those fish?
    If the regal/goldrim/yellow/? had just had whitespot, why did you put a purple in there with them?
