I have a Yellow Tang in a 45 gallon tank who was seemingly healthy until a bad accident occurred-the person who cleans my salon used my tank cleaning bucket to clean the flooor! When I realized that had happened I did a water change and he was fine, amazingly. I left for vacation the next day (a friend looked after him). When I came back he had obvious signs of HLLE. It took me a while to figure out what it was, as my LFS dismissed it. The really bad news now is, he won't eat anything at all, never mind the stuff that should clear up the HLLE. He's wasting away, I'm distressed and horrifed. His breathing is a little rapid, but no other obvious signs. I've tried feeding him everything possible. He's swimming and acknowledges food, he just won't eat it. He's the only fish in the tank (he's rather large), by the way, and I've had him about 10 weeks...
