A tang in a 34 gallon sorry but there is nothing right with that also horseshoe crabs shouldn't even be brought into this hobby... It's a good to have another person in this wonderful hobby but many people who set up tanks deserve to be put in a hole cause of the lack of research and the deaths they tally up so please don't be like one of them and do serious research before making purchases or find a more fitting hobby.
This MSG is not meant to be offending or rude in any sense

Whether or not it was meant to, it was pretty harsh. These fish don't always come with good instructions. If you're lucky, your LFS clerks will give you good info. If not, and you haven't done a lot of research beforehand... well, sometimes you end up with that beautiful pearly white translucent bubble tip anemone that you later realize should never ever be white.
BTW, it's a little greener now, but still struggling for survival. Everyone makes mistakes in this hobby. Rather than suggesting we be put in holes, why not offer some helpful and friendly advice?
And on the advice topic, how would you feed a bleached anemone that has lost it's stickiness?

Taking responsibility for animals and being unprepared and it resulting in death is also one might say harsh please explain to me how keeping a horseshoe crab in a tank yet alone a 34 gallon tank is not harsh and it seems as this person did no research and just plunged right into this hobby

I'm simply pointing out that in polite society, words are chosen to deliver a message with courtesy. "That fish should be kept in a larger tank for it's health" is considerably more polite (and less likely to make people defensive) than "you deserve to be put in a hole."
When you express your opinion (even if it's right) as a condemnation or an insult, you lose credibility. You'll get far better results with simple manners and advice. So yes, maybe a tang was a bad idea, and a horseshoe crab probably also. But rather than be insulting and rude, offer good ideas. Maybe try to make a friend so that when unsure of a decision, you're there to offer the benefit of experience.
