A pic would help. Big white spots don't sound like ich, ich is usually very small white dots, like sand grain sized. What size of tank is it in? Do you have a separate tank you can treat him in? Any other fish in the tank? They will all need to be treated and the display tank will need to be left fishless for weeks, i think 6 weeks? i forget the exact amount of time.

You really have a naso tang in a 29g tank?? There's not one tang of any type should be in a tank that small. He's prolly stressed to no end and your problems are just beginning.

Yupp tangs cannot be kept in a 29 gallon tank, sorry. They will get stressed being so cramped up which causes them to get sick, then die. A six foot tank is recommended for all tangs. I would return him to the store right away and pls don't get another tang for that tank! If you look on liveaquaria.com you can research each fish and what size of tank they need. It has a lot of useful information.

It will not survive as the others said in a 29 gallon tank. I would return it. Did the LFS know it was going into a 29 gallon tank?

Does not make any difference on the size of the tank. It`s cruel to have a tang in a 29 gallon tank.

Look up lymphocystis. It's a common viral infection that fish get. We have a tang who has had it and I happened to see a Naso Tang at our LFS with the same symptoms just today. The tangs need room to swim... Not really about the size of the fish. They like to race back and forth along the length of the tank. Ours cruises all day long playing in the current.
