    Hi Guys

    I'm looking at getting a purple tang and i went to go look at one today from someone i know but he has got something on both side's of his checks just under his eyes, almost like in his skin, slightly pale, the guy said he has been like that for a long time but i'm worried about taking him with that on him :( does any one have any advice for me or does anyone know what it could be???

    Thanks for the help
    cheers

    Sounds a bit weird. Only thing around their eyes is their yellow nostrils spots

    Sounds like it has a disease of some sot. Can you perhaps post a pic? I just took a look at my Purple Tang and he doesnt have anything under his eyes.

    Fleur, I know of another supplier who just got some small ones in over the weekend. PM me if you're interested.

    It could be HLLE. Good nutrition and water quality will cure this, thats if it is HLLE.
