Regal Tang Problem

Postby Zachh455 on Wed Jun 05, 2013 5:54 pm

It seems that there is a hair stuck to my regal tang's anal fin/anus, almost as if he/she is attempting to poop it out. For the past several hours the tang has been swimming somewhat violently as if attempting to get the hair off of it. Any advice? Should I attempt to remove it or wait it out? Thanks!

i would say leave it. it will work it out. it could be a worm of some sort, so pulling it out might tear something if it attached.
