Help! Sick Regal Tang

My Regal Tang has recently started behaving oddly, lying motionless for minutes, not eating and losing weight.

I have had him for 6 weeks, the first 5 of which he has been fine, eating well and swimming lots.

The "sickness" coincides with the introduction of my Flame Angel, however I dunno if this is significant!

All water parameters (pH 8.4, SG 1.023, Nitrite 0, Ammonia 0, Nitrate 0-5ppm) appear fine and remain pretty constant due to weekly 10% water changes.

Any ideas anybody?

No marks or spots but a slight fading of colour, no rapid gilling

Flame appears happy as Larry and was quarantined.

You might want to try soaking her food in garlic juice, this can stimulate a feeding response. What do you feed your fish? It sounds like it may be a nutritional problem. If the garlic works, you may want to soak the food in a vitamin supplement, I use Selcon. This may help.
Anyone else?
