How old is this tank (how long has it been running)?

Did you acclimate the shrimp? Shrimp must be slowly acclimated to new systems.

I think the white fish is a white fang blenny The SaltyBox - Marine Fish & Reef Keeping Forum - White Fang Blenny

Watch your fingers when reaching into the tank. The name is accurate to the fish.

There are many problems with this tank, did you do much research on livestock before starting it? How was the tank cycled? When you say 1 week do you mean you put water in the tank 1 week ago?

it sounds as though he simply added water to the tank and placed some livestock...

Those aren't cleaner shrimp they are banded coral shrimp, unless you have a mated pair chances are you will end up with only one Saltwater Aquarium Shrimp for Marine Reef Aquariums: Banded Coral Shrimp

You will need to probably read up on lateral line disease stressed tangs usually end up with one or the other and possibly both.

Please read up on the fanged blenny and see if that is what the white fish is. Make sure you know what to do if it hits you.
