Some people had success feeding their tangs micro algae such as this to get them going with algae sheets and frozen food: http://reefnutrition.com/phyto_feast.php#tab_use

Tang died. Found him this morning. Going to call shop and see what they say.

As far as the rocks, I am going to move them around and see if i can make them more stable. I had some caves made but I'm sure i can improve on the actual structure.

Cant find the gramma yet, she must have crawled into a crevice to die. Not too worried about her yet, its alot of water so Imight not experience any spikes if I dont find her body. But I will try.

What a crappy morning.

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

That stinks. It will be interesting to see what your LFSS says...seems awfully quick for a fish to die, unless it was not healthy to start. Good luck and sorry for the loss.

Talked to the shop and they wont do anything for me. I even pulled the "I'm a board member of the reef club" they sponsor but nothing. I didnt expect much, maybe a discount on a new fish maybe but no.

Hubby is out burying the naso now. Searched and cannot find the gramma so I think it was eaten up by the cuc I suppose. Tested the water and no ammonia, willtest a few more times today to make sure.

The huge copperband butterfly I saw last week is starting to look very good now. Just not sure I have the cash to replace the naso. If I do go with another tang I need to do it soon, the existing tangs havent fully staked out their territory yet so the sooner the better. The same shop that had the pig copperband also had a blonde naso, not as large as the one I had but he had just come in so he was still in qt and not for sale yet. And of course he was more money, $80...... This is what you get for being inpatient I suppose, I should have just waited for the blonde to come out of qt and gotten him then.

I know it's rough for you Carey, but I'd say be slightly patient. Rearranging the rock should throw the tangs off some with territory and give you some more wiggle room to consider another fish.

Bummer about them doing nothing, but it seems that most LFS go that way. Makes me wonder how places online can offer 7 or 14 day guarantees.
