well just little updated
the anemone seems too be getting better but its mouth is still open and
yesterday the tang got better all of its ich went away and it was fine and for the last week it started to come to the top of the tank to eat rather then just stay in the middle soo i left everything as it was and left the temperature at 82 (i brought it up to cure the ich while giving it medicine)
but today when i woke up the fish was dead in the corner off the tank
i measured the tang it was just under 4 cm
will the death of the fish do anything to my water levels, other fish, etc. and how can i fix it to make it normal

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Lower the temperature to about 78. 82 degrees does nothing to ich.
I would be doing water changes to correct any parameter issues and not add any fish for a while.

Let your tank sit without any fish for six weeks. Any ich parasites will die in that time without a host.

Make the investment in an API Saltwater Master Test Kit. You can mail ordser one for around $20 or pick it up ina store for around $32. That will get you pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate test kits which you should have anyway. I'd also buy a refractometer to check your specific gravity (salinity) if you don't have one.

Once you have your parameters under control, an occellaris (sometime called a false percula) clown would be a good fisrt fish. True perculas IME are a little more delicate.

Please don't get any more tangs in a tank that small. They are very active fish that need a lot of room to swim and stress easily, making disease more likely. You have now experienced this first hand. Also, I would advise against any cleaner wrasses (the black and blue fish you had). They generally don't do well long term in captivity.

What kind of lighting do you have for your anemone? Please specify bulb type and wattage.

No. It requires the body fluids of fish to survive at the adult stage.
