    Posting for a local reefer.. 12yr old Yellow Tang has something under its eye. I attached a pic. Any help on what you all think it could be would be great. I asked what the water params were and they said all are in check. Thanks for the help. 12yrOldYellowTang.jpg

    Looks a little stoned. Or maybe a hang over.

    Looks inflamed or bruised. Could have bumped into something? Infected? Thinking out loud.

    What other fish are in the tank chris? That's a wound, not a disease. Being that the tang looks very white leads me to believe he's very stressed and could be wounds from a battle. My sohal scraped his head on the rock to his cave and it looked just like that. I had to make the cave bigger since he likes to dart around.
