reversing head and laterlline erosion

What can be done (if anything) to reverse the effects of head and lateral line erosion on a yellow tang. My tang is showing symptoms I think,( the yellow colour around the face area is dissapearing) and I hope there is something I can do to help it.

What and how often are you feeding? How is water quality? Usually HLLE is from prolonged exposure to poor water conditions or lack of proper nutrition or a combination of both. Tangs need a lot of veggie matter in their diets, so if you are feeding them meaty foods constantly, over time it can lead to HLLE, just as an example.

Some more info would help. Also, give this article a once over. Along with giving some cures, it lists many other possbile causes that are theorized.
