Being a nano tank owner I know the difficulties of stocking a tank correctly, and instead of a tang if you are looking to clean up algea I would suggest an emerald crab. They are reef safe if fed properly and are fun to look at. They also do an amazing job. Mine cleaned my tank of all hair algea within a week or so of first being introduced. I know you said that you wanted a fish but I can't think of any fish that can preform this task in a nano. So skip the tang and look towards inverts is my suggestion.
Thank you for the advice,
yea i had a emerald crab, but out of nowhere he died. i have no idea why, my levels were good and i was feeding brown algea as well every other day. im going to pick up another one soon. any idea what fish would be suitable for my tank?
