The fact that the tank is so you might actually be the problem. Do lots of water changes and add some bacterial supplement like stability or special blend or both. Keep oxygen levels up!
Soak some nori or food in vitamins and with time he should get better. Let us know of he gets any worse though.

Watch for any scratching or rapid gill movement as that would be a sign of ich.

Remember this is a virus that needs to run its course. No matter how many vitamins /supplements you add it still has to run its course. Also about moving it to qt .... With lympho being a virus it has different strains . So if you do not have any other tangs then there is no need to move to qt unless something secondary pops up . So basically if you have a tang in your tank with lymphocytosis it is contagious to other tangs only just like if you had a clown with it is only contagious to other members of the damsel family.I would just keep water clean and keep a sharp eye out for anything secondary

I agree with hondatech. Sorry, I didn't mean to say that vitamins and supplements will cure the virus, but help the fish through more easily.

I would leave him in your display and keep an eye on water quality. Moving him to another aquarium will probably just stress him out.
With regards to micro bubbles, it's not such a good idea to have them in your display tank. Do you have a skimmer and flow pumps?

In terms of vitamins - I use bright well aquatics vitamarin-m and c. Basically you've gotta wait it out and provide your fish the best water conditions and nutrition.

I figured out the bubbles are coming from dual powerheads in the tank i just dont know where they are coming from bexause i took out the two tubes that are bringing up the water and put them in the back chamber and no micro bubbles.

with his eye condition I have to agree with Hondatek on his diagnosis. Tangs are really tough when you move them to a quarantine tank, I have lost a few trying to quarantine. Try to make it as less stressful as possible I like moving them during lights out time and it seems to help keep them from stressing out.
