    Got a yellow tang along with two new clown fish from the lfs on tuesday this week.
    Since then my powder blue tang has disappeared and one of the new clowns.

    The yellow tang seems to have a cataract in the right eye.

    Fast suggestions would be appreciated.

    Remove the tang? Or leave it n hope no more death occurs.

    Spearo. Is the yellow tang showing any other symptoms? When I had White spot some time ago, fish also got cloudy eyes.

    Pop eye, from the side it looks like a cataract but from top view can see its pop eye.
    Thanks @TaahirS

    Time for a water change, read a few articles on pop eye n this is one cause of it. I have relaxed on the water change this week due to new skimmer installed
