need some advice on a Sailfin Tang

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I just picked up my tank yesterday and got a sailfintang with it.. when i got home its eye looked funny I though it was popped eye but today he has been getting "white" like a bleached shirt... Do you guys think its HLLE??


I really liked this Sailfin but im not sure if the move stressed it out... I kept most of the water from the tank during the move and put them in my garage in my 125g while i setup my 180g


I have feed it frozen Brine shrimp and it will eat it just fine, I have heard that HLLE could be bad diet do you think a couple days would do this??? any information will be appreciated.


Hopefully i will be able to get my hands on the 1" bulkhead i need and finish the tank tomorrow and bring it the house.

pictures would help, It could be HLLE but most of the time it would be more prominent on the lateral line on the fish as well. double check water parameters
