After your tank cycles. It usually takes about a minty to fully cycle. Test your water and when your ammonia and nitrites are 0 you know you're good

The purple tang will not live long in a tank that size (100 liter) and the stress will cause disease that could kill all your fish. How long have you had the saltwater tank? Has it been through the nitrogen cycle?

Did your cycle finish? Have you tested the water? And the tang, oh the tang, should NOT be in a 25g tank. That is asking for trouble and they are not a cheap fish.

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