Healthy or not

Just lost my first tang. Wasn't anywhere as active as this little guy. Does he look healthy

Can't really tell from that pic, but Blue tangs are very prone to ich. Stress from a small tank, aggressive tank mates, and other things can easily set them off. It looks like that's a QT that you have him in. That's a good start.

Do you know what caused your 1st tang to die?

I have a powder blue tang that I just bought .
The first night was kinda hard ,
He is settled now ,
But speaking if eating he is picking at algae but when I fed the tank he never ate .
Either he was to slow and everything else ate it or he wasn't hungry .
I dosed the whole tank with amino acid( contains copper ( very little percentage )
Does copper only have to do with QT or tangs ?

You only want to use copper in qt. corals and inverts are very sensitive to copper hyposalinaty works just as well in a qt.
