I am also new to saltwater tanks (about ten weeks into my first tank). I have also noticed red streaks on the side of my coral beauty angel, as well as some around the gill areas. I went to my local pet store and they said that the fish could be overstressed and experiencing a burn from waste in the tank. He told me that this could be remedied by feeding the fish less and completing water changes more often. However, he told me that there was a second possibility, that the fish could be experiencing Septicemia. If this is the case, he recommended a tablet medicine called Mardel - Maracyn Two. I've just started my fish on this medicine and it takes five days till the cycle is complete. If it works, I'll let you know.

P.S. Its been about ten hours and the fish has already started to return to its normal behavior patterns, no longer scratching against the bottom of the coral substrate.
