    hi, I'm new to marine tanks. We have recently got a regal tang from someone, but it is VERY pale. They were only feeding it flake food, so I'm guessing it's a nutrition thing, I've introduced frozen food and seaweed to its diet and it's going nuts for it! It seems healthy in other ways as its swimming about and has a ferocious appetite. Is there anything else I can do for it? image.jpg

    The photo makes it look a lot darker than it is, so not sure now if it's photos that make them look darker than they really are!

    The most common thing would be nutritional problems. I would try to feed it some sea veggies(sea weed) as most tangs are vegetarians. It could also be from stress.
