Powerhead stressing tang

I just put a 1500 power head in my 75 . I believe it stressed out my tang to death!! Has this happen to anyone!?

Nope. I have a 105 which is 4' x 24" x 21"....just a little deeper front to back from your tank, and i have a 2400 gph power head in it along with a 1500 gph return pump and I think it's not enough flow.

Understood. But do I think introducing the power head could stress out the tang?

No. I don't think so. They live in the ocean and swim near turbulent reef crests with no trouble.

Just changed the water Friday. All levels are perfect. Took my water to LFS. They said it was possible that he got stressed.

I agree with mr.x, the ocean is much more powerful than our tanks. No way more flow killed the tang an no smaller fish.

what were your exact params. If your LFS just said "good" thats not really enough. What other fish are in there?
