So IYO Seaweed/Nori added into the tank will help with the Vitamin C and hope to clear up this problem....?

The major factor in a tangs diet is algae, so yes nori should be used and fed daily. I would also not hesitate in feeding a mixture of food including nori, which is good for all your fish.

The tang feeding off of the nori or dried seaweed will add vitamin C to his system. Plus the fact that he is a herbivore seaweed will help with his overall health.

The community stress would make sense as when the Blue was added it was picked on for a while by other Tangs to attain it's status............. I am going to remove him to the QT tank for a few weeks and see if this helps to cure it all before reintroducing to the main tank and monitoring...........many thanks all for the direction.
