Joy, don't get me wrong Tangs will eat meaty stuff like Mysis and frozen shrimp, but it's not on their regular diet.
Keep up the great posting. You are doing fantastic.

Happy Reefing,

Just posting this for those whom believe tangs won't take advantage of available meat when available, especially when a coral is stressed. This is a video of a clam dieing and numerous fish consuming its flesh, including tangs YouTube - Muerte de una Tridacna. Getxo Aquarium. Parte 1¬ļ A coral doesn't have to be dieing to attract even herbivorous fish, just being stressed and producing excessive mucus is enough of a stimulant.
