Got some new tangs today. Liveaquaria standards definately have gone down 2 purple tangs seem to have HLLE. First time dealing with this and lucky i have a QT tank but not sure if I should even begin prazi treatment.
Wow that's a shame. I would just observe and feed well for as long as possible before adding prazi or anything.

Starboard was used to create baffles in my sump. No one says it will work but I roughed up the surface and using expoxy to glue the baffles down and will use silicone in other areas. So far so good but In case it does not hold I made sure baffles itself will never separate since I cut a tongue and grove in the 2 pieces of baffles so can have this Only drawback is I will have to have stable water line throughout my sump.
Where does one find a sump like that
 
+1 on letting the tangs beef up a bit. you can toss a uv on there if you see spots. all the yellow and purple tangs I get have hlle, it's a slow recovery. try selcon, ab+ even some of the acropower in their fresh frozen food. wish I would have seen this early I have way too many blue tangs here. let me know if you decide to get another.

I gave it a week then hit them with prazi and now finished 2 weeks of copper. The hippo died in 1 day but the 2 purples are doing well and HLLE is fading fast.

Hi, thanks tangs are doing well and I am interested in getting another blue tang, How many do you have?
 
Anyone else have some big tangs they want to rehome let me know! Tangs will have to go in order of species so zebrasomas and probably last would be acanthuride. Its a shame I can't really justify the price on anthias since they are probably not catching them like before and i seen groups of 3 for $500
