I don't think "punishing" the fish has any real benefit. lol I took the ortange ones out of the 55g and put them into timeout in an unoccupied 29g and after a week when I put them back in with the black clowns the orange one went straight after one of the black ones.
So no, I don't think pulling them out or giving them time out time works.

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