    HI all.

    I need help urgently.
    I just came back from the fish shop and got a fish called a yellow tang.
    The assistant said the fish would be fine in my tank.
    but its seems to be swimming funny and staying at the top gulping for air.
    ive only had it in for 10min or so.

    Please help and tell me whats wrong
