Ahhh that may be the answer. I didn't realize all that you had in there. If it died, espeically with such a great cuc it probably would be gone. I would still check your parameters for the next few days for any spikes.

as stated before, that tang needs I believe a 180 gallon tank. Its one of the biggest ones I think. The missing fish could have easily been stressed by his enviroment. tabgs are notorious for having stress issues in small tanks. How big is the sailfin? Was he much bigger than the blue tang?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just so you don't think I'm messing with you on the tang:

overview
The Sailfin Tang, also known as Pacific Sailfin Tang, has an oval body shape with several rich, distinctive bold markings. It is brown in color with light freckles on the nose. The body has five, vertical yellow stripes with intricate markings within each stripe. Its tail begins with bright yellow ending with blue highlights. Its appearance can practically double in size at will by raising or lowering its tall dorsal and anal fins. A 180 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room. It is aggressive towards its own species and conspecifics at times, but peaceful towards other fish in the tank. Introduce like species at once.
Although Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae. This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health. Offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed at least 3 times per week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products and are very easy to use.
Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2"; Medium: 2-1/2" to 3-1/2"; Large: 3-1/2" to 6"

The sailfin shouldn't be in your tank. It sounds like you may have stocking issues, too much bioload. How long has the tank been running and what are you using as filtration? What are you testing your parameters with?

Not really the best filter setup for saltwater but it will work. What were your levels when you tested them?
