tangs died

Hello everyone

Well two of my fish died in one week. A Naso Tang and A Hawaiian Yellow Tang. I have no idea why? It is like every new fish I buy or put in it would last a month? Anyone have an idea? Getting frustated. I am about to give up.

Most short term deaths are aclimate related. I would slow your aclimating process to as long as possible. Check the LFS parameters before you take the fish home. I was having a problem with fish dying after aclimated before I checked the LFS and there salinity ended up being approx 1.009 where as mine is 1.024... Even the longest aclimation possible is still stressful at that rate. Needless to say I no longer shop there. I lost about 3 or 4 fish each aclimated for minimally 3 or 4 hrs.

jimmyhong7, I see in your previous posts that you had similar problems with a 29-gallon--were the tangs in that tank? If so, that may be your problem right there, as tangs need a lot more tank than that. What are your water parameters?
