Its in a 55g right now but its only 2 inches long so I figured it would be ok .... I figured by the time it needs more space I would upgrade and get a bigger tank . oh theres also 2 clowns ,1 damsel ,1 goby and a hermit crab

Your tang is stressed because the tank is too small. Makes no difference how small he is. Read these

My blue tang is in a 47 gal column. He's fine and there's deff. Much smaller amount of swimming space, it's prolly another cause. I'm about to move into a 75gal though so calm down Tang Police.. Haha!
