The only aggression 8n this setup is between the foxface and the lavender. Once the lavender for big it got balls and started messing with the foxface. The tangs all get along. I would never keep them together if they didn't. Rehoming either the foxface or lavender may have to be what I do. The kole eye is the one that looks beat. Noone bothers him. He just looks sick and skinny. They are all in QT at the moment.

The 'looking beat' is the sign of the aggression. You won't always see it.

Kole eye is gone. Died in quarantine. Just hoping nothing else was going on.

Well that was quick, pretty sure I see ich on television foxface and lavender. I'm taking them all out and putting them in quarantine tonight.

If you see ich on any of the fish then theres ich in the whole tank and its there to stay until you do a fallow period on the tank. Taking the fish that show ich out isn't going to fix anything.

If anything, ich is a sign of stress as a healthy tank can keep it at levels where its not problematic. The stress is likely due to the overstocking.

I have just had Ich myself and only way to deal with it in the DT is go fallow for at least 12 weeks to rid the system of it.

I have a kole myself and it does need a good diet I have found in QT it was not that keen on copper either and it's skin went blotchy and pale.

Since being back in the DT after the fallow period and feeding well it has now gone back to normal I have a lot of tangs myself and they do eat a lot.

I always have a Grazer ring in there as well as Nori on a clip they get fed a varied diet of

Nori
PE mysis
Plain mysis
Brinshrimp
Chopped mussel
New Era Aegis pellet
New Era Aegis flake
New Era marine pellets
New Era Marine flake
New Era marine Grazer ring
Ocean nutrition spirulina flakes
Ocean nutrition formula one pellets

They are obviously not all fed at once but I rotate the feeds and have found they love them all and remain healthy.

Well that's what is going to happen then. They are all in a 40 breeder now. Not sure why it took over 2 years to show its ugly face but it did. Kole eye was m6 favorite so I'd love to get another.

And lavender tang will be last to go back in. Maybe it will chill him out a bit.

Were the fish beat up before but you only noticed it with the brighter lights?

I've beaten Ich before without transferring fish. My fish are pretty big so putting everyone in another tank wasn't an option. I used garlic on food and used voogle which is an immune booster.
