Went out and got a power head he's doing much better . Or looking better I should say. I'm guessing I didn't have enough flow?

Maybe. You don't have to feed him FYI. If you have proper lighting it'll be fine.

So I put the power head in to please the Duncan. In the process stressed out some fish!! So much that the tang died!! Not happy. Do u think it was from stress??? He was fine up to this point.

A tang isn't going to be stressed out by a powerhead being added. There not being any water movement created a low oxygen environment with CO2 buildup along with a tang being too big of a fish for a 75 gallon tank is what lead to the death.

Yes, you need flow in the tank for it to be a healthy environment. I don't know why the tang died, but maybe your test kits can tell us.
