As I had mentioned in my previous posts my Palani Tang has/had some form of parasite that was turning his skin brown and had an odd texture. I since have been doing some regular 20% H20 changes and also treating the water with RX-P.

He was looking better and today when I did a water change prior to adding the RX-P I noticed him lying on the sand bed. He is breathing, but not responsive to his surrounding tank mates. The water parameters are all in range and I did skip the RX-P today due to his irregular state.

I wish there was something I could do for him/her. Does anyone have any advice on what else could be going on with the tank or the tang? The other fish are active and seemingly fine.

I just have a feeling that he is down for the count...

Thanks

Thanks a ton. He actually just passed away a few moments ago. I am going to discontinue the RX-P and see if the other fish stay fine. I cant wait to add my inverts back to the tank. I am thinking in 30 days after 2 partial H20 changes the water should be invert safe again.

For now I am just going to let the tank exist and leave it be. I will add more fish in the spring.
