Quarantine before you infect other fish. You can try medication or hyposalinity treatment. Bigger question is why is the tang sick, stress, water quality, is it a new addition??

In the future, if you get lights that are a lot more intense you should get a couple layers of screen of some sort and slowly remove them over a couple weeks to let fish and coral adjust or raise the lights up high and slowly lower them
