i have a big aggressive sailfin tang. it has never been bad before but my foxface is getting very skinny while the tang is fat as i try to get more food to the foxface. yesterday i came home from shoulder surgery to find the foxface beat up. open wounds, scrapes and his tail chewed up. i had set up a qt for my naked clown from the same tank as he has a bacterial thing going on but am wondering if it is stress. i put the foxface in the qt tank -- how do you treat injuries like he has? also what can i do with the tang? no one would want him as he is aggressive and he has hlle from another lifetime of incompetent reef keeping... HELP!!!

You might want to rearrange the rock work so that the yellow tang no longer has its territories and everyone starts from ground zero.

i would treat the foxface with Maracyn 2, just to be sure it can heal without any infections...also, moving the rockwork could work..i would try feeding a little more as could be aggression over food, but most likely territory...have you tried putting in 2 veggie clips on each side of the tank??.............. the sailfin is a bit big for a 72g..maybe you could trade your lfs if nobody wants it

i do use 2 veggie clips but they both insist on goig to the same one. i may try to find them both homes in bigger tanks as they have both gotten very big .. the foxface is hanging in there so far. i will treat him ...i will write the boston group and see if anyone is interested...
