    Welcome!

    Tell us more about your tank. What size is it? What livestock do you currently have?

    Did your tank cycle?
    That tang will not be happy in that size tank. And if that's a emperor angel it wont be happy either.

    Doubt they would be happy in a 100l tank for long. And the emperor will probably nip at your corals.
    Adult Regal tangs need 180 gallon tanks. Which is about 650 litres.
