Thanks Rick . The tang eats everything else it's just the algae. I also think it would have worked out better if they were closer in size . too bad i don't really want to bring it back.

The heniochus was in the sump all day before I returned him. I left the algae sheet in while I was at work and the sailfin did indeed eat some of it . So it was the henio stopping him from grazing.

Tangs, more than most fish, are subject to stress. That is why people sometime think they are ick magnets...but in reality, they are just easier to stress out. It's why folks add them in groups and take special precautions when introducing to a established reef. It's also why we harp on tank size as they really like to have some room and good hidey holes. You might try building a temporary quarantine area or box in the tank and reintroduce him that way for a while. Or go for broke and add him back with at least two other tangs. Hope your tank is big for that trick to work.

It's a 180 gallon tank . I traded the henio for a yellow mimic tang. The henio went after my puffer so I wasn't having that at all he had to go ASAP. So far the new one and the sailfin are good with eachother.

That's a good tank for most tangs, bigger is always better...I built a isolation box I can hang in my tank to allow shy fish a chance to adjust to the water and light cycle of the tank if needed. I think it has helped a few times.

Cool deal the tank is very peaceful without the henio . My puffer probably would have attacked and killed the henio if it kept messing with him If I didn't do what I did so all is well .the algae sheets are getting nibbled on now so I know I made the right choice.
