    I recently acquired a Yellow Tang (a month ago) and today I noticed that he has started repeatedly rubbing himself against my Brain Coral... Why does he do this?

    Well thankfully it's in the quarantine so it doesn't spread. You do exactly what you would when you have a fish in QT.

    Oh and to answer the main question. Definatly the beggining of white spot. Skin has started to become irratated.

    You would treat him with a copper based solution like Cuprazin.
