is he the only fish in the tank? Usually fish gulping or gasping or making trips to the surface means low dissolved oxygen

How old is the tank? I had mine for 14 yrs and he never went to the top. Always stayed on the substrate.

Usually that is the smell of ammonia. You might want to carry your water test to your lfs for a double check.

Local fish store.


Everyonce and a while my pink spot goes to the top and hangs out on the rocks.
I think he just likes to see what's going on.

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

It's reeking for some reason. Do you have your own test kit? Can you post the results in a picture?
