Red Spots on my Yellow Tang
hi everyone!.my yellow tang(Mellow) has been turning red, looks like a rash. one area on his fore head sort of on top of the eyes has been red and little holes are appearing in this area. a second area is in his tail, around the area where his little white spike is. does anyone know what this is? if it helps, my water is perfect. i have a starfish in here so i keep the water as pure as possible. 8.5 for pH.380. calcium 0 ammonia,0 nitrites. .5 nitrates wich i continously try to keep low for the sake of the starfish. he feeds regularly, brine shrimp in the morning and night, and some vegetable flakes in the afternoon. he grazes normally on some live rock so i really dont know what it is. anything will help!thanks!
no, im not inhuman as to flush a poor fish down the toilet(i heard that they suffer alot when you do that, its so sad) but back to the point. the heat is rising in the area so i decided to lower the heater and THAT gave me a shock. the knob on the heater was broken and water got in, so i removed it quickly and my fish have been acting normal. i feel terrible that i didnt do anything about it till now. will my yellow tang recover its injury or will it have its red spots forever?
