Copperband and tangs

My friend loses his tangs a few weeks after buying them, all other fish are good, corals are good too.
Any idea what I can advise him

Most tangs need a 180 gallon for room to swim or they will be stressed. Feed garlic to boost the fishes immune system.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

Lots of questions since nit much info was given....What size tank does he have? What's in it? What kind of Tangs and how many is he adding? How is he acclimating them? What is he feeding them? How many days after he gets them are the dying? Signs of disease or anything out of the norm?
