Blue tang help :(

My blue tang keeps breathing rapidly. She's eating fine. Is this normal ?

Ok well she could very well be stressed from being in a small tank. Tangs should be kept in 6' tanks minimum (with the exception to the kole and couple others) but a blue NEEDS a big tank. Tangs are known for being ich magnets too so if she becomes sick it could effect your entire tank.. what is your stock list and how old is this tank

I've had the tank for two years. Never had problems with my water.

I'm not saying the water has issues. The stress level is gonna be the issue. Are there anymore tangs in there?what is your full stock?

Nvm checked your other thread.. the only thing I can say is the tang needs rehomed the rest of your stock looks good but things will only get worse as she grows
