I agree with Lando, he'll be ok for a while, but it will likely get some ick spots at least (although I hope not). Do you use garlic on your food/in your tank. That may help a bit (i've been told).

Tangs in general are prone to marine ick. Look for white spots on it's fins. Also lok for any long-term change in coloration, rapid breathing, external parasites, decrease in appitite. James is correct about the garlic. Try soaking the food in something like Garlic Guard by SeaChem. It will boost appatite and immune system. Make sure you feed a varied diet and provide the tang with some grazing food through out the day.

Honestly, you may want to consider a trade in. Even a 70 gallon is small for a tang that will grow to the size this one will get.
The percs will be fine with this food.
If your keeping the tang, you will want to get some seaweed (nori) strips and a clip for it for him to graze on. Tangs need vegetable matter in order to thrive.
You can find nori at most LFS's and at your grocery store in the Asian food section.

He is swimming around and seems pretty happy but he stays at the back f the tank and in the crevices of the rocks. Is there anything to do to make him swim in the open?

Be patient, the fact that he is swimming around it a great sign!!
Watch, but don't move around too much. Let him slowly get used to seeing your face.
As soon as he figures out you are the one that feeds him, you will see a change.
