Fadeing Regal Tang

Just looked at my regal tang and saw some white big spots around his body looks like clorox fell on him. What is that.....

Tangs do loose color when stressed or when there is a lighting change. A pic would help.

good luck if it looks that bad its to far and reversing that doesnt happen to often. i had a baby tang i goubght from the lfs and a week later i saw the first signs and tried to feed him as much green and soaking food in extra selcon. but it didnt help it when from head to tail with in a month. so i will now leave those tangs to the see i now have a salfin tang and havent had a single problem with him. but if you just turned the light on after its been out for a while they do fad a bit.
good luck with him and i hope yours doesnt turn into what i had and my also after 5 months of being in the tank started beating everthying in the tank up. GOODLUCK!!!!
