i'm not sure what a purple crab is but you should be ok. xenia is supposed to taste awful to almost anything and zoas are toxic. atlantic angels will eat zoos and i have caught certain snails wiping them out in my tanks before.

Depends what tangs and what size tank. Tangs are burst swimmers and territorial. It takes a decent size tank to hold two of them. None of the fish should bother any of the corals though.

Wait 2 tangs in a 10 gallon!?!!? Wheres the tang police?! For one small tang you need atleast a 75 gallon if not larger, get those out of there, get some clownfish or damsels!
