Do you have any other tangs in your tank? if so do not add him in. Also, I would QT him for 6 weeks to make sure he doesn't carry any parasites since you say your tank is healthy and running great for a while. They are ich magnets too, so any fish you may have that will stress it, can cause it to come down with the problem often.

OH YEAH, I have severaland they do the same thing. I would warn you not to add anymore tangs in your tank if they have been thier for a while since they will attack it. Also, the way you know that they are fighting and not chasing each other is if the fins are cut and frail and you see any cuts on them since Tangs have scapelsthey use to attack.

achillies tangs usually travel large distances in the wild in very turbulent water i wouldn't put one in a tank any smaller than 300 gallons.

i have read in a book that even this would be small they are demanding and among tangs one of the most.
