I can't argue that its' a lot of work, I feed mine at least twice a day and I always always make sure she is eating. So that takes time too. I do agree that for the most part alot die from starvation and the mortality rate is much higher than with any other fish. It's a purchase you really really have to think about before making. I spent months going back and forth debating whether to get one.
I am glad I did get mine, she's kinda pudgy and eats mysis, bloodworms and brine like a champ. The beginning weeks weren't so good and you have to make sure that you for sure can handle the feeding requirements.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
