Do you know what light it is? Did it have writing on the box? What kind of lamps does it use and how many?

Keep your fish, keep your eye on them if you see a problem trade it in. At least you want advice learned some stuff and many fish out there are in worst shape with out any good advice for them. IMO I never will buy a tang and some other fish. I see tangs diving and to say a tang needs a 4'-6' tank is a joke these fish cover large areas and no tank is big enough to keep them happy.

Oh no, very sorry about the tang. I hate losing fish, if thats not bad enough that they die you also are out a decent amount of money usually, it's a double hit.

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

Tangs do not belong in a tank your size. If that's your tank in your avatar, I think you need a lot more filtration (live rock). I have a strong feeling your lighting is not sufficient to keep corals long term either.

I tend to agree with just about all the advice given here. I also understand that you have an addiction like many of us here. But the advice here is sound and you owe it to these fish and corals to keep them in a tank that's suitable for their needs. A lot of fish are caught in the wild and brought into tanks where they will suffer and die an early death.

Sadly, it is obvious that you won't listen to anyone's advice and instead do what you want to the fish's detriment.

Should have used that $50 on fish that are well suited to smaller tanks. Tangs on a minimum should have 55g plus, and I recommend the plus. They school well together on even bigger size tanks.
