    I have no actual experience with this “disease”, so everything I know comes from anecdotal evidence obtained online. Probably the best description of Tang Fingerprint Disease comes from this trusted source: http://chucksaddiction.thefishestate.net/disease.html
    This Kole Tang had this discoloration (similar pattern) on both sides of his body. None of the other fish/tangs were affected, and it seems unlikely that a coral or anemone sting would have caused similar looking markings on both sides of the body.

    The next morning the fish appeared to be perfectly fine. The discoloration was gone, like it was never there. No antibiotics or other medications were ever used.
