Thanx but Im not sure if I should kill it. Because somone said he did a PWC and it did fine. But, other fish seems fine so I think its just the tang.

Right now I only have 2 gallons ready, usually begin to fill u reserve on Thur. I can try to get things togehter quickly but the tang is in VERY BAD shape it can barely swim its lifelessly blowing around the tank with its fins extended like it does when its senses predators or something.

I have been there and know what you mean. When you can't figure out whats wrong, and you come to the conclusion that it will die, you wish it would be over quick.

Sorry about the PT bud....

His contracted belly is definitely a sign of hunger. My tangs get to looking like squished playdough if I neglect the nori hanging. He must not have been getting enough to eat off of the rock (maybe he was picking at but not eating the HA).

My PT fades at night. He also has a funny way of hiding under rocks when he wants to. One time he was laying horizontal under a rock. I thought it was crushed or dead and when I put my hand in he swam around just fine.

If you're sure the tank has enough water flow/aeration then try a couple of drops of cyclopeze and see if that doesn't get him swimming like mad. My tangs love cyclopeze.

Good luck with him. Maybe he isn't as close to death's door as you believe!

Why would he be gasping for air though and he seems really weak and getting pushed agaisnt things like a rock. He looked fine for the past 3 days then I ate dinner looked at him again and I saw him dong what hes doing now. And if it was hungary why would his health deteriate so fast he was swimming and happy this morning.
