Matt...If you did not see any signs of aggression on the tang (nipped fins, other trauma), any signs of disease/infection/parasites and all parameters are okay I would look to the diet of the purple tang. When my purple tang died I actually learned a lot about nutrition (thanks to Steve). What are you currently feeding, how much, how often?

Brian,

Marine green
Bloodworms
Plankton
Mysis Shrimp

This is apart of the normal feeding, I do every night. I also attach nori to clips on the side of the tank.. Although generally they get eaten pretty quickly.

I soak the food in vitamin supplement every couple of days also (garlic juices etc)

I am unsure to get another one or not, but will go in the 100gal if i do so..

Do you think it is worth getting another..?

your 100 is at capacity after you add what is in the quarantine tank! Don't make the same mistakes again.

I agree you are maxed out. Do you hang nori or seaweed salad for you tangs to graze on?
