Black spots on my Yellow Tang

I was just wondering if the black spots on my yellow tang are normal? It seems to be scratching up against my rocks quit a bit too???

It's not normal! It's a form of ich. look up black spots on fish.

melski is right. Your Tang has a case of Black Ich. Which is bad, and could kill the fish very quickly.

I suggest reading this article because although it doesn't discuss Black Ich directly, black ich is just another form of the regular white ich that you see more commonly.

Marine Ich or White Spot Disease

I have to jump in and explain something....Black spot or black ich is a flatworm infestation and all though it's not hard to irradicate it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. Do a search on google for Black ich and it will explain it better then I can...
