This Morning the Powder Brown Tang looked like it was rolled in sugar indicative of Marine Velvet.

he was removed and placed in a fresh water dip of RODI water heated to the same temp as the tank as done previously twice before.

Dip was for 5 minutes, observed Tang breathing fast as had done before in fresh water dip, once removed was placed back in DT and it was super active then started to jump from tank and in a few minutes it subcome to its illness.

I am thinking it wasnt healthy enough to survive the dip but its behavior was differant.

I held the fish upright and its breathing became slow and lost its boyancy then drifted to the bottom, i retrieved it and observed it in the water and it had stopped breathing.

Pronounced dead!!! RIP Pwder Brown Tang " HOJO "
