Hara is right on as far as how you choose your words. It can make all the difference in an accurate diagnosis. In regards to this parasite (crypt), three days is plenty of time for the trophont to show up. You will know quite quickly if this is C. irritans
if they re appear in about 3+ days. If so, all your fish will need to be removed to an appropriately sized QT
and treated, not just the tang. Since the spots have "left" the fish, it has now moved on to the reproductive stage (tomont) for which each can produce 200+ tomites.
