    Hi

    My yellow tang is developing red blotches, same as the one in the attached thread. Were the guys correct in stating that I need to treat with an antibiotic. Sorry about not adding a pic, only have a camera phone so I don't think you'll be able to see.

    Thanks

    Thanks Belinda, that sounds exactly like my system.

    Last time I checked my parameters they where
    Ammonia 0
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 2.5-5

    I'm running NP Bio-pellets same as most of the other people on the post.

    I had the same blotches on my yellow Tang. Did a water change, dropped my Salinity. Check your salinity with an Hydrometer adjusting for temp. I though my salinity was around 1025, probe reading, meanwhile it was somewhere up of 1027.

    seemed to resolve my issue. It was about 10 months ago when I last had it. I also changed my salt back to Salinity, as I had changed the salt to other makes at the time. No issues since then.

    Ok last time I checked my salinity it was 1023 at 26 Degrees, but that was a while ago, will check it again.

    I also seen now that his bottom back fin is also turning brown on the tips, what could this be?
