Hi all my boyfriend has a salt water tank. He had a blue tang and a blue starfish. Tang died out of the blue and today the star fish had a bite taken out. He got a lion yesterday after the tang died! Any help!!

wow.. um lets get some more details on the tank, fish and whatever else is in the tank.. also blue tangs are notorious for ich, and thats probably what happened, getting a lionfish out of the blue doesnt sound like a good decision either unless its an all predator tank which it sounds not to be..

Thanks the tang looked fine and ate. He has coral and liverock. A clow as well he had wanted the lion . The other fish seem to be ok. The star fish was fine then he walked away and it had a bite

Ok that's too small for a blue tang FYI. Also do you have any test kits to check tank parameters?

Yeah you may get away with a kole or tomini but not a blue. Did they tell you what the readings were when they said they were ok? How long has the tank been running?

No worries did you cycle the tank before you added fish?
