Tang coming apart?? Sick???

My yellow tang is fat and active, and is not a shy eater. But......he looks like he is falling apart at his seems. All his "natural lines, (the kind we have on our palm)" on his face and body are white or red as if they are hemeraging. What is this, and what can I do??

Please Help!!!

Is there any way you can get him some natural foods(maybe you already are) like Grape Calerpa or any other type of macro algea. Tangs are herivores and need lots of Green stuff. Just a suggestion. My tang had this problem and this is what I did for him. He did recover and is doing beautiful for the last two years.Have a good day
