That is alot of food and way too much. I thaw out mysis cubes and put like 8 shrimp for 3 fish every other day.

You can feed with the mysis cubes but make sure that you rinse them out and get rid of the juice. The juice that the mysis are frozen in is like rocket fuel for unwanted tank growth. Try putting the cube (or half) in a strainer and run under water until you just have the mysis left, then dump them in. You can also use a turkey baster if you are target feeding.

Ok because I put the cube in a container with saltwater from the tank to thaw out and then I feed half of what the cube give me, so I guess now I will just run the cube through a strainer so no turbo juice gets in the tank lol

To work on the algae I would cut your lights back, do some additional water changes and cut the feeding back as well.

I also strongly agree that the tang needs a MUCH bigger tank, even if he is small right now. That tang in particular needs a 6 foot tank just for starters.
In addition, that anemone should not have been added so soon. Clowns won't host a condy and those nems can actually eat fish and they get huge normous. lol I had one and returned it, took up nearly 1/3 of my 30g tank when I had it.

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