    scopas troubles

    I have a scopas tang in a 125 gallon tank, it's been fine for five days, grazing, eating and moving around. Today went to feed the fish and the tang is under rocks and won't eat or come out ( kind of listing), it doesn't seem to be in any breathing distress or have any fungus visi ble on it, tested all my water levels and those are all fine! Any suggestions on whats wrong or what to do would be of great help! PLEASE

    No it's not stuck, moved the rocks and it just backed under another set of rocks, it's really strange!

    It could just still be getting used to its surroundings. Is there a lot of movement in front of the tank?

    There is no elevator to success in marine tanks. You have to take the stairs.

    Welcome to TR, Carol.

    What other fish are in with the Scopas? What lighting system do you use?
