Is it feasible though that nothing was bothering it for about 3 months and the all of a sudden something "hidden" starts eating it? The brain started receding before I added the stuff Thursday night.

Mine was fine for several weeks before it decayed. It just happened out of nowhere and it went downhill pretty fast.

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

I thought you had mentioned hermit crabs on it. They will pick at the dead tissue but while they do that they can rip live tissue apart and kill it as well.

Nothing was on mine. No hermits, no fish, nothing. I think someone else mentioned the hermits from a problem they had.

You may nothave seenthe crabs on there but just the fact that they were there when it was dying means they could have been speeding the process up.
