    It might just be an injury from a fight with your yellow tang or maybe it got stung by a euphlia coral, Regals love to sleep on strange places.

    Uv is not a guarantee on ws. Only kills free swimming stage but your flow in relation to your uv watts is nb and also the wall thickness of your unit

    Keep feeding. They will develop natural resistance to the outbreak. Keep stress at a minimum.

    For me as long as they swimming around and eaten theyll be fine. Once thing that i swear helped was adding garlic gaurd to the food twice a week.
