    Hi Everyone

    So i got my first Regal tang 5cm, he/she has been very happy in my tank for three weeks now.

    Yesterday she went into the overflow in the filter sock, for some unknown reason,
    the "thing" ( overflow cover ) moved mysteriously and left a gap just big enough for our child to go through.

    So as soon as i opened the filter sock, there was our Dorry, very stressed and
    white under the belly, so i quickly drop her back into the tank, switched off all lights and one flow pump, she was not looking good, and was laying quite still all day.

    So after a big prayer, this morning when lights came on she was swimming and eating like a mofo...

    Were are so happy and excited about our little survivor

    I have new respect for Regal Tang :thumbup::thumbup:

    Awsome - good save.
    but remember the stress can/ will probebly lead to a bit of spot because his imune systym has taken a knock.

    I sugest a little herbatana imune booster to let him recover and help prevent spot.

    send our best wishes and a speedy recovery to little reagle :)

    A happy ending:thumbup:. why not look at some mesh or a overflow comb to prevent future overflow surfing.

    Great stuff!

    It is never a nice sight seeing fish children in distress!

    Try adding some Stress Guard next time.

    I always add some when adding new fish to my tank!
