I'm officially worried. Haven't seen the blue tang out since this morning. H'es not dead or anything cause I can see his tail and he's totally hidden behind the rock. Just cant see anything other than his tail moving here and there. Lights are on blues and he still hasnt come out.

Not sure on the Tangs. But my puff was the same way for about a week. Hardly even when I would feed. But now he is all over and playful.

I am very tempted to break some of the tank down and get a look at the tang. I can't stand not knowing if he is ok or not. What if he has ich or something? Or maybe he got cut up with all the rock.....I just don't know...

This is the first real fish I have added since I had those 6 die about 2 months ago. He was very shy in the qt tank too but at least I didn't have alot of rock so I could still see him.

I know, I'm probably being inpatient but I;d still like confirmation he is ok.

But then you may stress him even more and you will have to wait that much longer for him to come out. But then, maybe not.

Breaking the tank down will stress him. Patience. Not my favorite thing either but u had him in qt for how long? And no problems. Plus you said he was shy to begin with.

I just moved some rock and coral and caught a glimpse of him, no ich and no abrasions on the one side of him I could see. So for that I'm glad. I'm just really antsy when it comes to the tangs as my last tang experience wasn't stellar. lol

I think I may move some more corals and rock though, kinda feel like going for a new look. Nothing major, don't wanna stress pootie if i don't have to but some of my corals are getting pretty close to one another.

My fragging tools should be here by friday so I will be attempting that over the weekend I hope.

On another note, I saw an awesome, and I mean awesome anemone yesterday, he said it was a RBTA but the tips were a bright pink!

Do bta's have the tendency to eat fish does anyone know? I know a condy is out of the question and I don't like the carpet nems....Then again, I;m not sure I want another nem, but this one was fabulous.
