Not really so, it can take upwards of 7-10 days depending on what stage the parasite was at when the tang was introduced.

Is it possible that the cleaner shrimp is taking care of all his spots?
The outwardly visible spots possibley but not the trophonts dug into the epithelium. This is what commonly fools people into believing it's not there or that symbiotic animals have "cured" the fish in question. That and you never know at what developement stage the tomont may be at.

I am gonna post some pics later, as soon as the images get approved.
I checked the pics in your gallery but unfortunately the clarity is not enough to say one way or the other. The tang is definately a beautiful specimen otherwise.

For now at least I say play wait and see. Your QT is set up so you can afford to be a little more patient.

Cheers
Steve
