I put a regular Naso in a tank that was 4 months old and it is doing great 1.5 years in. The tank it went into was a 180g FO. I will tell you it took almost a week and a half to eat.

Most tangs are grazers and graze on algae growth on the live rock. You can supplement this so its not a huge issue.

I would probably QT it if you have the means to?

I would not add one very early. An established tank will help with grazing, which helps keep it happy. Also, newer tanks tend to take a while to really stabilize. Stress-free tangs are stronger, which helps with defending against Ich.

While it wouldn't be terrible, there are lots of tangs that would be better suited
