    Seems he lost the fight with the purple.

    Else, do you have any stinging corals with long sweeper tentacles that could burn him?

    yip, bacterial infection is the big concern at the moment. It should heal quickly otherwise.

    I lost a yellow tang due to a infection. The yellow dude cut himself on a piece of egg crate!
    He was fine for 2 weeks, then he was gone! Rather treat now!
