well i think i know what the prob is my sailfin tang was caught "red finned" picking at the tentacles. for that sailfin "i order you to 10 left handed pimp reef slaps and 2 biat*chhhh be good slaps" well if that is not enough you here by stand expelled from the tank and forced to live in the sump.

Elgordo......Is the Sailfin ONLY nipping at that head? or is it doing it to both? I imagine if its only that head the the sailfin is a "reaction" not the "cuase" of the problem. Many tangs will nip at corals when they are "sliming" or expelling zoo or a handful of other reasons. If it is only nipping at this one, I would say its because the head is injured, not the other way around.

Is the "bad head" shadded by the other? I had this happen with one of mine. Had two beautiful heads...but the one higher up in the tank started to shade the lower...as the "upper" head grew more and more, the lower grew less and less. Eventually it did what you are describing. I used a hack saw to cut the branches and moved the "bad" head to another spot. it recovered in full, and was actually way larger than I had expected when it recovered. I ended up trading that head in at the LFS as they wree both plain brown FS, and had long sweepers, didn't really want two of em in the tank.

FWIW
