    Hi guys i had two clownfishes that died. The reason i think the clownfish died was because my algae snails died and release high ammoniea. Anyways i think it could have been from something with my yellow tang. He has scratched on the bottom of his belly and i see it looks like black little parsites on one side of his body. could anyone help me diagnoise this dieasie or problem. i removed the dead clownfish and snails. its a reef tank

    Do you see white spots on the Tang? What are your water parameters? the black looking issue could be just from him scratching.
