Water quality parameters,
Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, specific gravity, how long has the tank been up? How long was the tang in the tank without issues?

By parameters he means ammonia, nitrites and nitrate levels.

How big is the tank? Have you checked your sump or filter socks?

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

Theres no other fish in your tank? Could it have been picked on and passed away? Depending on when it died a decent clean up crew could have eaten it.

Did you check your filter and around your tank? Fish can get into the smallest spot sometimes you really can't imagine. LOL

As a side note, and not to make it worse, but a tang shouldn't be in a 65g tank. theres a couple tangs that maybe can get away in a 75g but a 6 foot tank is needed for almost all the rest.

Oh almost forgot, if he is dead and in the tank he is gonna start to decompose soon and your parameters may suffer. I would def. monitor them for a few days. Do youhave the liquid API test kit? It will pick up the ammonia as soon as it starts and you can be ready for it. Thats of course if he's in there somewhere

How old is the tank, and as Carey mentioned it was too small of a tank for him. We still need parameters for your water.
