well ich is going to be a common occurance with a tang. as long as you make sure he is well fed he should survive. do you have any corals or inverts?

One thing I will say is get a UV Sterilizer.

yeah, unfortunately there isnt much you cant do to treat it in a reef tank. but like mike said, a u.v. serilizer would be a great investment for times like this.

ok, you have your tang in a nano and not a large tank? if it got ich that may be your problrm. its to small and to more than likely stressing it out, even if it is a baby.
