    I have a still young sail fin tang and he has developed small white spots on his tail, dorsal fins and a little over his eyes. What could it be without me taking a photo :blush:

    I have a crummy camera which takes crummier photos through the glass :(

    I read somewhere it could be a kind of "herpes" which this tang gets but my tang has been alone for so long already and has no gross girlfriend to speak of :whistling:

    Its a disease called itc/white spot. There are lots of posts on here regarding it. If you can you must quarantine him asap. Tell us more about your system so we can advise...
