Naso Tang Hiding Under Rock

Hey all,

I have a Small Naso Tang, he's about 4" I have had him a few weeks now, and he has been looking fine.

Yesterday he was swiming around the tank as normal.

Today When the lights came on, He was the only fish I didn't see, So I began looking for him, and found him under a rock. He is still alive because I can see his side fins moving, but other than that he is just hiding under the rock and not really moving.

I don't see the White spots on his body that he normally shows when scared, So I don't know what's wrong with him.

Any Ideas?

What about water checks to make sure that is OK. Can you post the results. Also you do know that a Naso tang needs a minimum 125 gallon tank. I see in your sig it says you have a 55 gallon. They have to have plenty of swimming room. You might want to try some dried seaweed soaked in garlic to help.
