    Took a "business trip/vacation" to San Fran and came back to a dead Powder Blue Tang (it was the Naso I was worried about as the PB was eating, fully active, great color, etc and the Naso still only eats brown algae). I also lost two Allens Damsels. I didn't notice anything wrong with any of...
