I have been putting in algae sheets about twice a week. Maybe I need to do more. I have a seperate 10g that I put the foxface in for now because he was basically laying down breathing very heavy and I just know he's not going to make it so I removed him from the tank. The yellow tang and 1 clown are currently in the main tank and are doing perfectly fine. My corals are excellent and the cleaner shrimp and couple snails are fine too.

I am going to wait alteast a month to make sure everything stays okay and then I will add another clown so I can have a pair.

How big is the foxface. Usually when they do that it's cause they feel cramped or he may just have really bad ich/internal parasites.

He shows no signs of ich. He is about 4 inches.

Since the beginning he was shy and always shoving himself inbetween a crevice of the rocks and just staying there. Very rarely he was about swimming with my tang.

exactly that's what I think has been happening. I saw him nip at the sheet mabye 3 times and rarely eat the bloodworms/frozen brine/mysis that I alternate. The clowns and tang were perfect. My 6 line a little while back and my royal is still MIA. I am just so stressed because I try so hard. Water changes weekly, testing weekly, topping off w/ rodi water. salinity is 1.026. THe corals are good so the water must be prestine.
