You should be OK then as that`s the only rap I hear about them is that they will wipe out your inverts.

What food are you trying? A good assortment of frozen and maybe some pellets might entice him to eat.

I also agree you should be fine as long as you dont have inverts, thats the only thing I hear they go after.

Good luck!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
