purple tang/small tank

this is the results of having to small of a tank. the latera line is seen because the spine is bending. if allowed to stay in 30 gal tank this fish would suffer a twisted spine and die. i have moved him to a 75 gal and in 2months all the lines were gone and the tang is looking good. so please make sure your tank is big enough. i hear that this tang needs 100gal min,if that is the case i will be sucking up to the wife again in the future. walt

While I am happy for the tang that it is in a bigger more comfortable tank, the fishes lateral line was showing because it was suffering from HLLE. To be honest, with all the antecdotal evidence of what "clears" it up, the only thing they all have i common is removal to a system that has never had HLLE. The improved conditions and possibly improved diet most likely played a large part in the tangs recovery, but it is just as likely the move did as well
