Powder brown and reef

Hey all....

Anyone ever had any problems keeping a powder brown or the like in a reef environment?
I had some pulsing xenia that eventually died out, so today I got some new ones....and noticed that my tang was eating the tops off of them.

They aren't cheap and I'm not sure if this is common??

Any help is much appreciated!

Any fish including tangs are a crap shoot. We have no control over their natural reaction to a reef.
You need to decide which is more important. The fish or the corals.
Sorry, but sometimes it comes to that.

Tangs are usually herbivores. But Shark is right. Anything is possible
