Lol, sorry guys I was sleeping during your posts (uk time!!)

I would try and section him off in a net but being a regal tang and I've sprouted a few more grey hairs since adding him I don't want to thrust anymore stress on him!

Maybe I should put him on a powerhead treadmill for a while!!

You guys are ridiculous....They're fish..Tangs graze ALL DAY in the wild..
Brighty ,if your talking about that baby regal you have theres no way its getting too fat,,All that fish is going to do is grow,grow,grow,,and your tank is not ideal for that

Carey ,yeah your LB is a bit chunky,but either you had a lot of HA or your giving him too many sheets

Just trying to keep it all in perspective ...You put a baby regal in a 68 gallon,then say he's getting too fat..That fish is a baby and will eat constantly ,then be very active all day and burn it off..I'm just surprised nobody said anything to you earlier about the tang and the tank size...I have seen regals triple in size in under a year..They are very fast growers and very active...Didn't think i was being rude or anything,,sorry if it came off that way...IDK ,maybe i was rude ,but i never heard of people worrying about their fishes weight..If the fish aren't eating and active and swimming around then their dying..
