    Utility wise, which tangs make up the best clean up crew?

    All of them? Googled it up and found this:

    Pretty much all the sources I looked at said the same. Zebrasoma family is best, all others are also awesome.

    If anybody is looking for a tang to do any real work and eat algae, then prepare to be sorely disappointed. A very few of them do, but most have no interest unless you really starve them, in which case they get disease prone and aggressive.

    I know jda does not really need anyone to vouch for him but my worst algae outbreak in my tank was when i had 5 tangs in it... They did nothing. Couldnt get myself to starve thwm because that's just wrong. But yeah they pick at stuff but won't really eat it.
