I've seen them do a job on hair algae in my LFS tanks. Had one once, At the time, my yellow tang picked on him so much, he was often the yucky color brown (as they do when upset) and hiding. He ended up back at the LFS, more for the fact that Mr yellow didn't like him than anything.

I have one in the tank with all my tangs. (see gallery) No problems. The only one that ever pushes on it is the regal tang. They were both only about one inch when I got them so they grew up together. I think they are married since they aways hang out together.
