Welcome! I would post in the saltwater getting started section to get more advice from the saltwater people on here. Also, please check out the links on cycling if you haven't already. Your tank is much too new for fish right now. You need to let the beneficial bacteria build up in your filtration system and your live rock. If you don't have enough live rock, you won't have enough bacteria. This is about all the help I can give, I'm more familiar with fresh and brackish systems.

Hi. You are not cycled so I would try to return those fish. Plus damsels are very aggressive so you probably dont want them in your tank anyways.

You need to add all your live rock BEFORE adding fish so the tank can cycle and be safe for livestock.

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