, the achilles tang is a fish that should stay in the ocean. Your buddy's fish might be eating now, but through the research I have done on them- they are known to go on hunger strikes. The Achilles is best suited for a more mature tank as they don't handle changes in water temp, or water parameters very well either.
The Achilles also needs the turn around space found in a 180 or higher and it needs very high flow water with plenty of swimming space because they are constantly moving around and could stress if in too small of a tank and get ick and ...well you know. Lol
