I have a yellow tang living with HLLE
for the 4 of 5 years that i've been its master. He only has his two swimming fins and half a tail fin and he doesn't seem to care at all. I've tried both Vita Chem and Selcon(both are supposed to reveres HLLE
) to no avail. I've never had issues with water quality and i feed it all types of foods, including seaweed with garlic, formula 2 with garlic, broccoli, romaine lettuce, anything and everything green he could eat. So what I've concluded or maybe it's what he's taught me is that if he doesn't care about his outward appearance then i shouldn't worry about it either. For he is the real master of my aquarium and he's as happy as can be, as long as food falls from the sky a couple of times a day.
