I have the 55g ready and waiting, just checked the parameters yesterday and its still good.

Do you think I should try to catch him? I don't wanna stress him any more than he clearly is.

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

That might be your only hope.He looks like he is stressed,probably by your other Tangs .Sure you haven't noticed them picking on him?

They only chased him around the first day and night. After that they were all swimming back and forth in a group. He was looking really good then suddenly went downhill.

I just know from past experience Tangs can turn on each other fast.

Just found the blue tang lying on the bottom. I tried to net him but he scooched under some rock. The only way to get him is to break down that corner of rock BUT I can't get the 6 foot light fixture off the tank by myself.

I know. I'm sitting here watching him die and theres nothing I can do. The anthias is with him so he's not alone. His breathing looks normal, he's just on his side.

What the heck am I supposed to do? What can i do?

I'm trying to figure out how to get my short arms in there and move some rock but I don't think I can do it with the light on.

I am beyond a nervous wreck. I've never had a sick fish die before and I didn't wanna start now.
