So I've had this Kole Tang 8 days. Water is good tank is 9 weeks old. Other stock is two ocellaris clowns and a royal gramma. I think he's getting more pale each day and the wife says he looks the same.

He's eating the algae discs and has cleaned all my algae in the tank. He ate some mysis and brine shrimp yesterday as he's getting less shy. Everything looks normal except some white stuff on his left and right side fins(don't know the exact name). I've attached a link of a video of him. No one bothers him and he's getting more bold and not hiding when I approach the tank.

I may just have tang hypochondria, I dunno. Thanks!

Can't view your video....says it's private.

The white stuff you're referring to....is it spots...tiny egg looking spots?

Could be ick.

If he continues to have a good appetite that's a good sign. If you have or can get some cheato, fresh lettuce or spinach, fresh shrimp, offer those.

Yes he sure is an odd ball. I think I'm being overly worried about nothing. He's fine this morning cruising around. I mean he was in a 30 gallon tank with like 6 other tangs. He has to be less stressed than the lfs!
