Kole Eye tang issue

Hi everyone,

I purchased a yellow kole eye tang the other day and have him in qt with a juvi tomato clown. They get along very well, no friction at all. I have noticed however that the mouth of the tang looks all messed up and the tang's mouth is always open. I think the tang has eaten some nori that I have put in the tank. Please see the attached pics. I have just started to treat with melafix tank

I think their mouths are open a lot. That being said, I've read that their mouths sometimes do get damaged when they are caught from the wild. I would keep an eye on it, make sure it doesn't start to look infected. Guess it won't hurt to use the melafix too, just in case. Pretty fish, BTW. I like those tangs.
