It's really a matter of having enough live rock and a seasoned tank. A refugium is also a great way for them to hide and establish themselves.

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

Add some macro algae to the fuge. And maybe a few lbs of well established liverock and just let time pass.
