Ooo try some LRS. It worked for me with a fish that wouldn't eat. Took 2 days. It's expensive, but everything wants to eat it.

Weird thing is I can shine a flashlight on him and the white spots are not there from what I can see.. odd....

That is weird. Maybe he's just fighting it??

It's really good stuff, they even have a herbivore mix. Sucks you got all that food and he still won't eat. 😟

I got it from my lfs. They actually have a big section of all frozen foods.

You sure he’s not cold stressed? I’m almost positive that’s happened twice now to me- my SCA fish when I QTd them for six weeks- soon as they transferred to the new tank which was warmer the spots disappeared. Same with the Evo fish a month back. First time I know I used water in a change that I hadn’t heated long enough and second time the controller wasn’t working the heater. Stinky told me to get the water to 80 and they all

got better 🤷🏻‍♀️

Well I dunno. I bet the spots are there then and it’s just hard to see. Poor fish. Can you jet him in the butt with a turkey baster? Maybe he’ll be nettable if you scare him out that way.

Do that.  I had LRS and it seemed like mostly clam...sorta-tough and mostly-larger pieces.  I like the original Rod's better I think.  Used Rod's quite a bit.  (Either would be good to try though!)

Any way to catch him when the lights are off ? I know mine hang out in the rocks at night but may be able to grab them............

I feed LRS about a quarter size chunk and also a cube of mysis and a cube of brine............ the tangs love the brine for some reason..............everyone eats the LRS but in the past loved the Rods food..............can not find it at my local stores so LRS it is...........just ordered some PE Mysis dry food as would like to put a feeder over the tank during the day...........

I just break off a tiny bit and let my asshole clown eat it out of my hand. This way I can control how much food gets into the tank.

That's already pretty moderate on temp., but if you can go a little lower without effort, might be worth a try.

Well dropped it a few ill see who gets pissed in the tank now :lol:

UPDATE!!! so silly tang would not eat. Gave him so many options so I was considering him a goner.. he hides all day. Last night he came out for like 20 mins and swam around and had lighter white spots and fewer too..  figured I would try to feed at night to see what happens.  He came out 10 mins ago and was picking at the rocks so I threw some food in again. Hes eating!!! Good sign .. maybe there is a chance. 

 

 

For this uv wondering if i should throw it in??

If the flow is right so the UV dose is right it will "work" for killing parasite swarmers but it's tiny for that size of tank, so still "under powered". 

 

I take it back, the fish suggests that you would have a much larger four foot tank, or six foot tank at least double the size of your current tank.

 

That UV unit could be about right on a little 40 Gallon tank.

 

(I don't know what your plans are, but I wouldn't plan on keeping him in there long-term. 👍)

Well tang seems to be doing better.  He is actually swiming around all day and picking off the rocks..  been eating frozen food a couple times a day now too so that's good. Got a uv up and running so maybe he will pull through. On another good  note I havent seen any signs of ich on the other fish, so hopfully they will be strong enough to fight back the ich.. 

 

Actually caught a pic of the tang on the web cam just now.. cant see much bc the lights are off and the glare from the window is horrible🤣.. but hey at least I can see him swiming around😎

Thanks buddy. Yea losing livestock always sucks.. I swear sometimes reefing just feels like a series of small fires that you are constantly putting out..😐

I have heard reef keeping is just delaying the eventual tank crash.. something like that :happy:

What sized tank is that again? The RedSea numerical labels mean nothing compared to actual gallon size.
