View Full Version : What happened to my lavender tang?

11/29/2009, 06:40 PM
I bought a real small lavender tang from my LFS on Fri. The fish was white when I bought it, I figured from being so small and maybe stress. It was doing fine, and even ate Sat morning. Sat evening it started to show a little more color in the fins (lavender/yellow). It also started to show some brown colored bumps near the tail (on the body, not on the fins). I was gone for most of the day today and I came home to this:

I'm very disappointed, as I've never lost a fish since I've been using my qt tank. The qt tank has been set up for 2 months and I change the water when I change the water in my display.

Also I was surprised that this happened so fast.

It appears the bumps moves up on the skin and turned into an infection?
Any ideas, is it safe to add more new fish to this qt tank? It is a 55 gallon.

Sorry to hear....Hard to tell what could have happened. Are there any other fish in your QT?

No that was the only one.
