Welcome to Reef Central. I'm sorry to hear about your fish. Tangs can be aggressive. What size tank did you put it in? Is it an adult or juvenile? What other fish are in the tank?

Thanks for the info whats your opinion on the powder blue tang is it as aggressive

Acanthurus spp. are probably some of the most aggressive tangs. It's difficult to suggest a non-aggressive tang as they are all territorial, but a Two Spot Bristletooth Tang (Ctenochaetus binotatus) is probably as easy going as it gets due to its relative small size.
