    I just got a blue tang on Sunday for my 75 gallon tank, just a wee little thing, barely an inch long. He was doing so well up until tonight, and just recently too. I happened to walk by the tank and saw him swimming upside down in rapid circles. His gills look fine, not red or anything, but...

    I'm new and learning. Started this new thread! Reading input I have been feeding with garlic and have done 2x doses of the Kordon Ich attach and now feedback is both treatments don't really work. I have a reef tank with several fish and it sounds like the only true way to get the ich out is...

I brought it home and acclimated and it was doing great for about a week and then it got what I though was ich.. I started treatment and seemed to have cleared up.

    I personally don't have any saltwater aquariums (yet) but I see people disagreeing all over about how big the aquarium size for a tag should be. Some people say a yellow tang is fine in a 55 gallon, others say it needs an aquarium at least 6' long. I'm not going to get tangs for my tank...

    Hey guys, not sure if this is a problem but i thought i would mention it anyway. Recently I have noticed that my blue tang has been breathing kind of fast throughout the day. He still eats like a friggen pig (its not even funny he need to go on a a diet, hes getting fat) but for some reason his...

    I just got an infant blue tang. quarter size. I read some on them, but obviously not enough in forums about how they act because I swore, like all other fish Ive seen, he was going to die, and who knows maybe he did now...but anyways, he swam around the top, rolled to the side, then allowed the...

    So, before you guys go all tang police on me, I'm gonna preface this with: this was not my decision! My dad went out and bought a blue tang against my warnings today. He's of the "We'll return it when it gets too big" frame of mind. It's in my 90 gallon tank. So the tang is only 2-3 inches or...

I've noticed she's got some white spots forming (ich obviously) and I know it's an uphill battle. She's...

    I can't believe it, but I'm sad to say my large Hippo Tang died this morning. The fish has been sick twice of the years and always recovered in my hospital tank. Now I'm second guessing using Nitrofuracin instead of copper. It's hard to believe I got it in Y2k.. :bawling:

    So I lost my son's Dori, Blue Hippo Tang, almost a week ago. I told him she was hiding but feared for the worse. Last night while doing my WC and cleaning the filter sock I turned the sock inside and and out flopped Dori. Still alive and eager to get back in the water. Luckily I usually dont...

    Hi Every one, I have a Hippo Tang in my quarantine for the last 5 weeks. No prior diseases, it's just a new fish. No new additions to the tank in 4 weeks. In the past few day I noticed some freckles/spots on its face, which I thought was normal. But this morning I noticed 5 brownish-white spots...
