Still alive as of now. He's not breathing heavy or anything, just on his side on the bare glass. He is still covered though, trying to let him be stress free.

I haven't added anything other than the cupramine so far. I think I may wait and see what happens with that. I don't wanna overdose him.

Unless that is the best thing to do, cause I really don't know right now

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

My two skunk cleaners have their station all set up. The yellow tang and anthias were both just vying for a cleaning.

Which of the above should I dose?

I think the tang is dead. He doesnt appear to be breathing. :-(

This all happened so fast, I was totally unprepared for it.

What do I do with the fish now? He's too big to flush and garbage day is on tuesday next week. This is an awful question to have to ask.

I hate today. With a passion. I don't believe I had a fish die on me. I'm stunned.
