    Hi I have a purple Tang that has been under the weather, for a few days he went quite, stayed behind a couple of rocks. He is now full of beans but has a lot of strange marks. Couple of fins not so good. Can you please help identify and suggest treatment. Currently he in in low salinity.

    What other tangs in tank? Any new fish added? You can boost his food and try a treatment of blue life safety stop

    Looks like another fish nailed him a bit.

    Those marks normally heals quickly.

    Hey Dallasg, where can one get this blue life safety stop. I read up about it and it seems to be made up of a formalin bath and a methane blue bath.
