Spot on the fish or scrape like burns, like the fish is rubbing itself on the substrate and rocks?
What are your water readings
Ammonia
Nitrites
Nitrates
PH
Salinity
ALK
Temp
What size tank
How long have you had the fish, how long have you had the system up?

Your tank is to small for a Tang. Sounds like it was either Black Ich, or the starts of Marine Ich. Either way. Your tank should show no Ammonia or Nitrites. Temp from 76-82, Nitrates under 40. Salinity between 1.017-1.025. PH between 7.8-8.4
