Update: My Tang finally decided he likes veggies and has eaten through most of the tank. I can't believe how much he's eaten!

I think its safe to say the basis of their diet is veggies. Mine love the Nori select stuff. Also attacks mysis shrimp, and an ocasional flake snack. I think its safe to say they are very opertunistic in captivity. I also had quite a decent growing of hair type algae which my tangs ate all of.
