    Hi Neil - that looks like a bacterial infection from a physical sore.

    I would put the fish in a low salinated (hypo-saline) solution, same temp and pH as the original water (actually - rather drop the salinity very slowly, over a period of a few days).

    Then add some weak iodine/iodide solution. And feed the fish food which have been placed in some multivitamins....

    the fish is now in isolation, the wound looks neither better nor worse, for which i am glad considering the stress of a move to a quarentine tank of sorts. It shows no interest in Nori or GHA, however it is keen on pellets to a certain extent and went mad for pea's when i put a marine mix into the tank last night..... can i buy organic peas and feed this to the tang????????

    Don't see why not. Have you had him for a while? Was he eating nori before? Peas obviously are not there natural diet so try mixing them with nori. When I first got my naso he wouldn't touch nori or anything else, then got red nori and ate straight away.

    Neil - IF the tang does not want to eat, then, I would say YES. If it would feed on pea's only, then do this for a short while. BUT, not long term....
