Possibly Sick Lemon Peel Tang
Hello to everyone ,
This is my first post so be patient with me. I possibly might have a sick lemon peel tang. I do n't know if it is sick or is just maturing. To follow the advice of the email of giving all the possible information that I can about my tang.
First, I bought him back in December from a retailer online. He is excellent with no aggression towards any of my other fish. He is eating healthy (cyclopeeze, mysis, algae on the live rock). The water parameters are all in check from the test kit that I purchased from a local pet store that specializes in saltwater fish.
However, I have noticed him changing color from a yellow to brown, which I understand that is part of the maturing process of the lemon peel tang. But at the same time he is flashing on his left side against the same rock and he continues to go up and get air. Where none of the other fish are going up to get air. I have not quarantine or treated him with medication yet. If so, what would I need to do and with what type of meds? Also, are my other fish in trouble if there is something wrong?
I acclimated him by drip method, and I have a sump filtration with protein skimmer, and u.v. sterilizer. As mentioned earlier I have live rock and have not given him any meds yet?
Thank you for your help,
