So I'm sure it was air also he was stressed when I brought in an angel in my tank I seen the parasites but quickly fought it off like nothing so I'm blameing the stress and oxegen.
So yeah that's what's up with my tank

how logn has the tang been in there for and how big was it. could have jjust been stress from a cramped environment, could have not been eating there are many possibilities that could have caused it to die, the only info you have given us was the parameters but doesn't tell us what type of water used if ther was copper or chlorine in it. maybe the tang picked up a pebble and it got stuck inside it.

if it was just air a fish isn't stupid and will migrate to the surface to get air. you said it was on the sand bed so i'm ruling out the air.

did you see any nips on it from beign picked on?

Your best bet at this point is to just hold steady and not add anything or change anything, continue with your regular maintenance schedule. After 4-6 weeks, if nothing else develops these symptoms the. You should be good to go

The problem with drip method acclimation is that the bag will cool down after an hour and the fish will be stressed out once moved to DT. The sump is a good place to put the bag for drip method.

Why not buy a 2.5-3 gallon plastic bucket, then put the new fish in the bucket, then start drip acclimating him, this is what i do and ive never had an issue
