i'm only suggesting this because i read a thread the other day about a fish that looked like it had ich and it was sand that attached to the body and then fell off. could this be the case for your fish?

is the regal the only fish in the display? if so, i would just leave the display empty for a while. by the time you are done treating the tang, the display should be safe to reintroduce it.
