What kind of lighting do you have on your aquarium? If you don't have the appropriate lighting for your coral species that could be a possibility for why they are not making it.

Also, I believe that Bristleworms aren't necessarily a bad thing, I hear they actually work as part of the clean up crew. Just DON"T GET STUNG by them (wear gloves, still may be stung with cloves though too).

Lastly, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your Yellow Tang needs a minimum of a 125 gallon tank.

If you have any further questions, just let me know.

No problem!

Do you check your water parameters regularly? Do you have high phosphates? When was the last time you changed out your light bulbs in the fixture?

T5s need to be replaced every 6-8 months
