Some fish it takes much longer to get acclimated. Has he found a place to hang out by himself? As long as he is eating off rocks it should be ok. You do have algae in your tank correct? If so, it should not be an issue. Just leave the seaweed over night and just let it go. Does he looked starved at all, or is his stomach looking good. Send us a picture if you can!

It sounds to me the white patches may be due to lack of correct vitamins......... which is due to not eating the right foods. We need him to try and break the circle, have you tried putting in some caleurpa to tease him out or attached seaweed near his hiding place to encourage him to eat it. I wouldn't panic to much if he is eating something, as another question is the foxface aggresive towards it? Especially at the clip of seaweed.

He may be talking about the spur on the side of him. Is it near his tail? If so, that is normal in this fish.

Algae that grows in your system or placed in a fuge, you can even buy it from your LFS. Tangs love it!
