Exclamation Sick Naso Tang- Help clueless

i am not sure what is wrong with my Naso tang. He is a quiet fellow and is usually in a spot he has found in our rock work. Today he was hiding in a differant spot in a cave rick we have. Now, I am not the aquarium expret, my husband is closer to that title. I feed this morning and he didn't come out. So I tried moving the rock he was in. He was actually sort of caught in a edge on the bottom of a rock. with a little coaxing he came out, but he just layed in the sand and was still curved like the shape of the rock. My husband asked me to get a smaller tank and set it up and quarentine him. I did which mind you was not easy to dig through storage, drag home and set up.. I have never set up an aquarium before. I used water from the larger tank. he is still not swimming and just laying there. I have looked up ick and dont think that is it since i read yellow tangs are usually the first to show it before Naso tangs, and the yellow tang is doing spendid. Any ideas? I hope to have some pics soon.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Naso Tang

In this case the naso would probably come down first with it as they need to be in at least a 125 gallon tank. The yellow could handle the 55 better. The ich would look like someone sprinkled sugar on the fish. Have you noticed that at any time. He does not look to good. I hope he makes it.

No, I have only noticed the whitish shots on his bady, but he gets the same way when ever I have to put my hand in the tank, and they usually go away with in a half hour of so.

All those fish and 0 nitrates? Wow that is some super tank maintenance you are doing there.

Just out of curiosity, how did you get the qt tank cycled that quickly?

Thank you to all those who did read and try to help. My husband (who's previous career was in the lfs business) came home and noticed some of the marks on the fish and felt he had a fungus of some sorts. So, we went to get medicine. However, upon return we found that he had already passed.

If anyone can tell me if the QT tank is still ok, or do I need to dump it and scrub and refill?

Cement shoes- thank you for the compliment i do work hard at it. I am a stay at home mom which does give me a little more time than some, but I do have the three kids (7,5,and 3). I do water tests every 3 days, keep a diary of all changes, and we do water changes every 10 days. The qt tank was set up water from my main 55 gallon tank. We knew the water was not the issue. ALso, we had the tank and all the equipment in storage it was just a matter of setting it all up.

I'm sorry for your loss. I've been following along, but had nothing of merit to offer.
