Last time I was in my lfs they had a tankful of blue tangs and every single one was lying on its side near the rocks. It was weird to see but apparently thats how they roll. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh my, I hope he's ok. I don't have any blue tangs, just know what I've been taught about their odd sand behavior.

good luck.

Are all your parameters in check? You acclimate real well? tangs are super picky...
