I just read this on liveaquaria.com:

In the tank, it needs a varied diet high in beta-carotene and vitamin C, and low in protein matter. To maintain its bright coloration, however, it must keep to a strict herbivore diet to prevent fading. Therefore, the diet of the Yellow Hawaiian Tang should consist of dried and frozen herbivore food that contains marine algae, and vegetarian items such as Spirulina, zucchini, broccoli, leaf lettuce, and dried seaweed.

What are you feeding your yellow tang currently?

BTW, I'm not sure about the little dots, I'm sure somebody on here will know more about that

well i had some little brown dots on my tang a little while ago and wen i did a watter change they slowly went away. old water puts stress on fish and when a fish has something wrong with it that is the last thing they need. Maybe that'll help ur perimiters can be fine when u have old water but a extra water change was all my tang needed.
