The only difficulty is in their diet. They eat copepods mostly, so you need a huge colony of them to sustain it. You can also try getting it hooked to dry or frozen food, but it's difficult. Other than that I don't think they're hard to keep than any other fish.

I know i know, is there any particular way to help copepods grow? Thats quite a hard task though because ive heard they just wipe your tank clean of them and still want more.

Having an immense amount of live rock and a refugium can help.

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