tank less than 6ft can cause stress and be more susceptible to disease. Tnags catch Ick easier than any other fish I know of.

A few Tangs (Kole, Tomini, etc) are okay in 75+ tanks, but its wise to treat those as true minimums. It's easy to think "it's only a few gallons less", but it is less.

That looks like the beginnings of head and lateral line erosion to me. Doe it look like a hole forming in the fish? It's a fairly common disorder in large angelfish and tangs, but I don't recall ever having seen it on a tomini before. I don't think they know for sure what causes it, but I think diet is the main suspect. If that is what it is, the good news is it isn't immediately fatal. The bad news is the fish gets pretty ugly over time.

Ich looks like salt grains on the fish by comparison.
It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labelling.

Yeah I agree it doesn't look like ich esp since its confined to such a small area of the fish
