That tank is too small for those fish. Tangs need big tanks to thrive, they are very strong swimmers and need thier space. In confined spaces they can develope a spinal disease. IMO i would take it back to your LFS, if they let you, and try to get a refund, some stores dont do that with saltwater fish, but some do, ya never know. Good luck.

tangs need at least 4 feet of length in a tank. Your tank is way overcrowded. i suggest you turn in some fish
