the tail on my coral beauty looks like a leaf rake. He seems to be swimming around fine, and its tail wasnt like that yesterday. Anything I should be worried about?

tomini tang, 2 o clown fish, a bi color blenny, abd a scooter blenny. I have a few crabs, a purple lobster, and 2 emerald crabs. all of which have been in my tank for months. I havent had any additions in like 3 months.

I'd put money on the Tomini as the culprit.

will he heal?

If he doesn't get harassed to death, yes it will heal. fish are actually amazingly fast healers.

I dont see anyone bothering him, and normally they get along great. The tomini tang has been acting aggressive all day chasing my bicolor around... Guess I might have to try and trade him in for a different one.

Is that Tomini in a 55? Tangs get terretorial in smaller tanks. Even a 180 is kind of on the small side.
