Looks like something is eating him. Could be some kind of bacteria eating at him.

Doesn't look very nice! Is it crashed on the floor?

Very sorry about your butterfly. I lost my last copperband not too long ago and it was really sad.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I am sorry too. Butterfly fish, even the copperband, are really hard to keep long term IMO. I wish they didn't even sell them at the LFS. I have known a very few people that kept them for over a year. Again, copperbanded are easier, but if Carry cant keep one, most people would have the same results. I never had luck with them and I have some 15 year old fish.
