Tang problem!!

My whitecheek tang has been in my tank for at least four months. He has just started to nip at my toadstools, and today I caught him shredding my starburst polyps. I always leave nori in there, but he stil nips at these corals. Any ideas, I think I might just bring him to a LFS!

a little variety may help. do you also feed mysis/brine or other meaty foods? they need more than just nori.

He eats flakes, mysis and brine. The mysis and brine I soak in Zoe. He eats well and is very healthy, but he stil nips!

Time for new tang maybe. Wondering if he will stop once he has the taste.

Yeah, I guess I'm gonna get rid of him. I might try a blonde naso, or another yellow tang. Thanks!!

I have a yellow tang and a scopas tang. Neither of them have ever bothered my corals. But they are well fed.

Lately every time I add a coral my copperband nips it one time out of curiosity. If I see repeat offenses he is gone.
