    I bought a sailfin tang 2 weeks ago. on sunday morning i found he had white spots but in the afternoon they are gone.he eats all the foods i feed i just have been adding garlic.
    i tested my water and all is ok i even had the pet store test my water, the only thing was my dkh was at 7, would that be a cause and should i be worried.

    Is the fish getting chased by the other inhabitants?
    If the spots came and went so quickly, then i wouldnt worry just yet. Keep a close eye on it and make sure its healthy and eating. Spots were probably from the stress of being introduced into a new tank.

    Sheet of algae that you feed you tangs they need that at least 3 times a week to be healthy that's what they eat in the wild (algae)

    An even cheaper option would be to buy it at your local SPA or Woollies
