I filled up about 1 gallon in 1.5 hours and thought I was kinda rushing. LOL. I was more careful cuz I was doing it with shrimp though. Well I'm glad the one spot is fine

Just give him some time. Sometimes it takes a day or so. Do you have your lights on? If so shut them down.

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

Til the morning. let him settle in. Thats what i always do especially if they seem skittish is turn off the lights and let him chill. Less stress that way on the fish what with being transported and then thrown in a whole new world. You;d be kinda stressed too LOL
