Mr. Blue's white spots had gotten so bad that they covered his eyes and when he ate, he looked to be blind. He was starting to develop grey splotches on his sides too. His activity level had dropped to almost nothing.
After speaking to my trusted LFS
, they advised me to lure him back onto a diet heavy on veggies and algae. He'd developed a taste for mysis and abandoned his algae feedings. I've been working him back onto Formula 2 for the past few weeks and he's looking absolutely 100% better, I'm happy to say!
He's lost a great deal of his weight, but he's back to sweeping across the tank and even picking at algae on the live rocks. His white spots were totally gone yesterday along with his grey splotches. He still loves the mysis, but goes for the Formula 2 also.
The guy at the LFS
has once again solidified my business and trust.
Moral of the story - make sure your Powder Blue Tang eats his veggies.
We'll be fighting in the streets with our children at our feet, and the morals that they worshipped will be gone.
And the men who spurred us on sit in judgment of all wrong, they decide and the shotgun sings the song.
