Sad to say that I lost my powder blue tang last night. As soon as my actinics turned off he went belly up. I tried everything you could to save him with a reef system but it didn't work. The garlic add. worked with making him eat but it was to late. I find it strange that the powder blue got ick real bad but my purple tang hasn't had ick yet. :(

It kinda sucks because that was a $80 fish but I see it as he enjoyed is time while he was here. And that it can happen no matter how good you are.

How long did you have him for?

About a month. When I got him he was fine, then about a week ago he would hide all the time, never eat. So 2 days ago I got a garlic additive for the sea weed I was feeding my tangs. He would eat it, but then yesterday after I got out of work he wouldn't eat but would follow me around the tank, then when the lights went out he died.

Well, it sounds like you did everything you could. At least you got to see him that last night.

I have been using garlic also to try to boost their immune systems. How much do you use with each feeding?

This is my first time using it the would soak sea weed in it till the sea weed was wet then just put it in there. For the frozen food I soak it with a cap full and water then I drain as much as I can so I don't get that much garlic in the tank.

Powder blues and browns have always been the worst from what I've seen. Nasos are tricky as well. Every powder I've ever seen introduced into a tank seems to come down with ich. For only having it for a month I'd say the damage was done before you got it. It was probably wasting away until you brought it home. I'm sorry to hear of your loss. It sounds as though you gave it a nice try.
