I've tried myssis soaked in garlic...didn't go for it. I've tried green seaweed on a clip and lettuce on a clip....didn't go for it. But I never let it sink to the bottom, so I guess I could give that a shot

I had this problem with my Coral Beauty. Ate fine at the LFS, but refused in the qt. What I did was break up the Nori (seaweed) into little pieces and allowed it to settle on the bottom. She eventually started nibbling at the smaller pieces and the problem was eventually solved. Might want to give it a try.

I'll definately give it a shot, especially since she's only grazing off the bottom anyway

i have for almost a year and i wish i could GET RID OF IT. I had the worst luck with inch and laterial line. However if you keep one i would suggest feeding it garlic often when you first introduce it to the tank for at least the first week or two this will help the fish fight off ich. And as far as the laterial line i had no like at a second try with baby tang that broke out a week after i bought him. i dont know how to prevent lateral line but make sure he eats lots of greens and dried seaweed. i feed mine frozen greens, prime flakes with selcon on them, mysis shrimp, and dried seaweed and unfortuanlty my tang still got laterial line. personal once i get rid of this fish i will never purchase one again. hopes this help besides the ich i havent had any problems with this fish being sick

hey the only way i got my tang to eat anything besides flakes way by seprating it into another tank and just only feeding him with dried seaweed on a clip and after a few days he got hungry and eats it all the time with no problem

Well I guess it's now about 4 weeks. She just disappeared two days ago. Just gone. No remains.

Your entire tang disappeared?! Oh my. That's just horrible. You must have an excellent clean up crew?

She is just gone. I can't find a single sign of her. We have about 75 hermits, 50+ snails, 2 cleaner shrimp, a coral banded shrimp, 2 kinds of urchins,2 emerald crabs and a serpent star. There are no leftovers in our tank. Ever. Not even an ammonia spike.
