You would have to supply it with several bottles of pods a week which will really add up. Unless you can make it eat prepared foods which is iffy at best then I would stay clear of them. Alot of these fish starve to death and are difficult to feed.

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

No, I'm guessing it won't. You need a large well established tank with your own means to maintain pods or you have to be lucky to get one that will feed on prepared.
