Naso tang info needed

First time getting one. Put him in my 120 g yesterday and now he rules it. Perfect acclimation. Feeds on the algae all day but didn't want the mysis shrimp this morning. What's his deal? Is he a vegetarian? That's easy. Thought he was a herbivore though. Any thoughts??

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Naso Tang
Minimum Tank Size: 180 gallons
Max. Size: 1' 6"
Diet: Herbivore
A 180 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room, and places to hide, with a tight-fitting lid provided to prevent jumping to escape.
Although Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae. This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health.

If that 120 is only 4 feet long its definitely not big enough. If its 6 I still think its too small. They can get HUGE.
