Could have been stress from being in a tank that is way too small for any tang. Tangs in general need a 6 foot long tank.

If its a juvenile it doesn't necessarily need a 6 foot long tank. I have my juvenile Scopas in a 4 foot tank.

Do you have powerheads pointed at the top of the tank? Increasing oxygen into the tank helps balance ph, aka ripples on the water surface is a good thing.
