All new additions should really go through QT before DT. From what I understand, all tanks have ick and stress to the fish is what causes them to be able to get infected with it. The QT process adjusts the fish and allows them to calm down after the stress of shipping or just the ride home from the LFS. IT also gives you a chance to kill the ick if it develops.

Put them through hyposalinity and you'll rid them of any ick. Does your DT have any fish in it at the moment?

I'd also maybe add some PVC to your QT. Tangs can stress more if they don't have a place to hide.

This is a new fish I got on Saturday. It never made it to my dt. I was just concerned about my other fish that came in today. He's probably not going to make it. I'm doing a water change to go hypo. Taking it to 1.010
