    maybe sick tomini

    I have a tomini tang that is in my tank and his color is fading. I posted about it a week or so ago but sicne then it seems his color has gotten worse. He still eats and he still swims all over the tank. Where he should be brown he is almost all white now. His orange/yellow fins are good just his body. If anybody could help me out I would appreciate it.

    Yesterday I looked at him at like 9:30, I will try and get a good picture here in a minute. I have my lights off right now so will try it with a flash.

    That is the best of like 20 that I was able to get, he doesn't like getting his picture taken. I am going to be going to the store and getting good with garlic in it, and I hope that works but we will see.

    IMO the wounds in the pix there look like rubbing on rock work.

    I see a yellow tang in there, what other fish are with him? It could be stress induced.
