    He hates skylines. That would be the reason. Kidding.


    It could be Ich.

    Nice catch on the username. tangs are prone to ich so that would be my guess.

    A picture would surely help. It could just be white spots due to stress. Could you provide us with you tank specs?

    How old, how big, water parameters.
