Yellow tang bleeding

I have a yellow tang about three inches long. He was swimming around the live rock and ran into my sea urchin. He has blood spots on both side of his back towards his tail. I guess the only thing to do is wait and see what happens, right???

Probably will get over it---may fester. Just keep water params good. If you see spreading redness pull him to quarantine and use antibiotic meds there, never medicate main tank---

yes just keep an eye on it. I lost a velvet wrasse a few months ago. It happened to be within a day or two of adding a long spined urchin. I never new for sure what it was, but suspect it shot through it's usual cave and may have gone straight into the urchin...but who knows.
