Tank is way to small for a tang.

I will get a bigger tank for the tang, but would it work with a pipefish in the tank? Thanks

pipefish are like seahorses. they need a diet of pods. they are best in a seahorse/pipefish tank with no other fish to compete with them for food.

Ya agreed it won't work. They really should only be in a species only tank

I agree, they need a specialized setting and stable food source. A reef has way too much competition.
