Those look an awful lot like suction marks. Do you have a pleco, by any chance?

Plecos don't live in saltwater. It looks emaciated. What are you feeding it? What size tank?

I'll rephrase. Do you have some sort of saltwater algae eater that might have taken a shine to your fish's slime coat? They do exist, though I'm not an expert in this area and can't give you species names.

Tons of sw organisms eat algae. Remoras are a fish that live on sharks if that's what you're thinking of. They're not a home aquaria species though. That tang is either in poor water quality or not eating a varied diet

in the middle of the marks, the white parts, is that flesh??? or is that on the outside of the tang? also what do you generally feed the naso and what other fish are living with it?
