Tank is a 55 gallon with plenty of live rock and some new corals.

I don't think that they are reef friendly?

I agree, you should be fine. A 55g is a good decent sized tank. You could add a few more in my opinion. If this is a new tank though I would take it slow and keep an eye on those parameters.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
