So sorry about your angel. have you done a water parameter check yet? Sometimes when you add a bunch of things in a short amount of time it can overload your bacteria as far as bioload.

My tangs can be aggressive but I don't think they could kill a fish. Was the angel harmed in any way or just dead?

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

Prams are good. I tested twice yesterday, once with lights off, once with lights on. Idk... It was jumping around when I was dripping it. Plus the more sensitive shrimp are great. Maybe I'm not meant to have angels, that's my second one... Smh... Carey, u woulda destroyed the guy I met in this lfs yesterday... He had 5 Tangs in a 55g! And was trying to get another! I was like, "you know most those Tangs need 125 or higher". He said the "fish liked to be crowded"... I just walked away... I couldn't believe him.

They like to be crowded is a new one to me. And a disgusting thought. I would have been open mouthed at that response. I don't know if I woudl have said anything further i would have been so shocked.

Your poor angel, I wonder what happened? Maybe bad stock to begin with? Hopefully your lfs does something for you, what with JUST buying the fish and all. You should even volunteer to bring in a water sample. Fish dying off within 24 hours is not a good reflection on the lfs.
