you said that the 10 gallon is to small for the yellow tang,but i have him in a 20l. could that be causing to much stress? the tank has about 15lbs. of live rock in it. i have a 55gal. freshwater tank that i want to transfer to the 20 and treansfer the tang to the 55. should i transfer fish furst before tring to get rid of ick or would that cause even more stress? should i but my freshwater inhabitants in the 10 gallon and move just the tang to the 55 gallon to treat?

i also have a question about my emerald crab. every time my fish swimms by him he tries to reach out and pinch him. is this just another affect of the tank being to small? do i have a more aggresive emerald crab?should i worry about hermitts and shrimp? is it dangerous to the yellow tang?

Yes move it to the 55gal. That is or could be the stress factor. A 20 is way to small for a tang. As for the crab because they are in a confined space everytime the fish swims past him its intruding on the crabs space. Its like me walking in your bedroom and taking a nap on your bed. You would pinch me to for it. Probaly do more then pinch. But you get the idea LOL
