It may or may not kill them but they'll suffer from the ammonia levels.

The best thing would be to return the fish if you can. If you cant you can still finish your cycle with the fish. It will just mean alot of pwc's. It can be done and has been. Not the best choice though. See if you can return the fish or leave them at the lfs until youre really ready.

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

You sure bought a lot of fish. I'm sure the LFS said your tank was ready; they'll be ready to sell you some more too. How long is your tank? 5ft?

You might have to return the tang anyways, it usually requires a 6 foot long tank. :-(

Nice looking tank but IMO, it's too small for a tang. They really like their swimming room is what I've read. I've read posts recommending at least 48".
