    Can not tell from the image. Marine Ich looks like grains of salt so it's actually pretty easy to diagnosis. Sounds like the ideal set up for ich to take hold though, a bullied fish is always problematic.

    What size is the tank?

    You probably need to remove one or the other at this point. You can try taping a mirror to the side of the tank and see if the tang is distracted enough to leave the fox alone.

    You're welcome.


    Unfortunately I doubt it will work out, the tank is not big enough to allow one fish to get out of the others way. First comes aggression, then stress, next disease.

    Do not get stung getting the fish out and I would use a container not a net to get them out so they do not get tangled.

    Good luck.

    Yes he will, you have to leave the mirror up for a couple days so the Fox Face can relax.

    I am not an expert on foxface fish at all, but in that image, the foxface looks pretty skinny - I'm not sure how healthy it is :(
