Hopefully it's just dead skin the tang is trying to remove. Otherwise, be prepared for a problem. Also start adding garlic to the food to help boost his immune system. Zoe too for vitamin. Cleaner shrimp don't cure ick and the like IMO. Look at his pec fins real close. See any real fine white spots?

I've never seen a shrimp ride a fish. That's gotta be cool to see. I you can, get a still shot of it at least.

Its not hard to get a good look at him.The fish looks fine...I really have inspected it closely and often and not one thing looks wrong..never has.

As far as the photo goes...well....Have you seen my other pics?lol
Both the camera and the camera opertor have issues getting decent pics,but I did load it with new batteries in an effort to try...I'll catch a bad pic if I can.

But its beyond cool...had no idea it was possible....had never considered it.

When I first got my cleaner shrimp, they would try and stay attached to my Yellow Tang when she would swim away. They would hang on for a few seconds and then let go and swim back to their "home" in the tank. I'd say it seems pretty normal -- the shrimp want to eat and the fish want to get rid of parasites.
