Do not treat the main tank and do not rely on garlic. You've followed proven methodology so far, why go backwards. Treat the fish in a proper QT when/if necessary and be done with it, period. Hopefully you will continue to QT and this will never be an issue again.

Excellent news so far. I would leave the tang there for at least another 3 weeks. The worst thing you could do now is jump the gun. Watch and wait, you'll be fine as long as you keep close tabs on the water parameters.

Cheers

im not actually treating the tang right now, just moved him to QT to monitor him more closely. ALso to see if those spots on him were actually sand that has gotten on him. By the looks of it now, it might have been just sand.
