Gosh, it looks like he may have scratched himself on something...He seems a little pale..Is he eating good? What other fish are in with him?

What are your ammonia and Nitrate levels? When is the last time you did a water change? I'm more concerned about his lack of color..

If you click on the camera under my avatar pic to the left you can see pictures of what a healthy yellow tang should look like...I feel really bad for your little guy...

One more question...How long has your tank been up and cycled?
