I doubt the nem killed the tang but rather the tang got sick and ended up passing from something unrelated.

The clowns are just being territorial. Not much you can do about it.

What are the params on your tank?
How long has the tank been set up?
How large is the tank?
How large is the nem?
How big was the tang?

When any of my nems get something, it's because it was sick or dying, never seen them catch a healthy fish. (had a sand sifting starfish wander into the carpet nem, not good) clowns just get aggressive about their territory, just happens. Sometimes they chill after a time, some never will

So if you watched all this happen why didn't you intervene?

I've never heard of a BTA stinging anything enough to stun it much less a fish that is 5 inches long.

No way the hermits could fully eat a fish while it was still alive. Even a well damaged fish would be able to get away. The fish probably died and was then eaten. Something else was going on with your tang.

I'm going to have to side with Bribo on this one.
