It's ok It is only through caring for something do we come to love it
My response was to what in my mind was a predatory response to your distress
Again sorry if i offended any one.

I have the 10g covered with a towel so its dark in there, it's just on the floor next to the 55g. I will try to get some pictures. He swam around for a few seconds each time I moved him. He is now on his side last time I checked though.

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

Here he is
I have on hand, amoxicicilin, pennicilin, and mela fix. i also have cupramine.
The lfs guy said tangs are very sensitive to the copper products and not to use it.

what now? Can anyone tell what he's got?

We run all our tangs with copper. Never had a problem.

Would the cupramine be a good thing to add then? I've never had a sick fish before and I'm clueless.

I have alot of corals, but he looks in way way bad shape for just a sting. I don;t have any nems in the tank either.

Just added the cupramine. He's still alive but still on his side.

Thanks for the thoughts. My fingers are crossed too!

Anyone think adding some amoxicillin or pennicilin would help? Or would it just hurt now....
