Yes, they're very skittish at first. They usually get more tame after a while but they always remain at least a little nervous.

I've seen them wedge themselves into really tight areas in all kinds of crazy contorted positions. He'll do it alot at first. After he's more tame, he only do it when he's stressed or afraid, which is usually more often than other tangs.

my pacific blue tang played dead on me and i almost killed the poor thing.
He was hiding in a hole in my liverock and i thought he was stuck.I grabbed him with a pair of tweezers and tried to pull him out.After a few pulls he finally started moving and i realized how stupid i really am lol.
