Yellow Tang is stressed out!

Hi! We have had a Yellow Tang for over one year now and it has always done well in our 36 gallon tank w/ our 2 other Clown fish. Lately, she appears very stressed out or sick because her top fins look thin as opposed to being "full." 8O We are about to buy a bigger tank for her but we are not sure what could be going on with her that her top fins look so wierd. Any thoughts?!


Go Gators!

I'm not sure - but a 36g is definitely too small for this fish, so it could be contributing toward the stress.

What abou diet? What type(s) of foods do you feed it? Does it have something to graze on almost constantly?

How are the tank parameters?

I agree with reeflady.....I had a yellow tang in my 30 gal untill I found out that they needed to be in a much larger tank. I would return it to the LFS before its too late...
