yellow tang acting weird

hi this is my first time posting on this web site. i have had my Yellow Tang for about 8 months and all of a sudden he has been rubbing both sides of his back end against the glass turning it into like a red rash. he only does this in one spot and no were else in the tank. i have had the tank for about 2 years i have a clown, six line wrasse, sunrise dottyback a cleaner shrimp 5 turbo snails 4 hermit crabs and about 8 pieces of coral. my water is almost perfect besides my calcium ph 8.2, ammonia 0,nitrite 0 my calcium is only about 300ppm. my tank siz e is a 30 gallon and i have about 25 pounds of live rock and two big caves he can go in, and i feed him mysin shrimp twice a day and a piece of seaweed twice a day. i have a qt tank but had bad luck with it (only one out of four fish made it out alive) what do u think i should do, and is wrong?

barring this i wonder if it could be a new additive or salt mix, source of water, or another changes in care or environment?

no i would not think that was recent enough to be an issue.. oh does the dotty have any issues? perhaps its parasitical.. but if the dotty is doing well ......

perhaps some of our more experianced members will be on inthe next day or two to help ....

nick... what are your thoughts here man... should we PM a few of the guys and see there thoughts on this?
