I woudl put it in a separate container or tank with a heater and a powerhead so that it can cycle through and "cure". You will need to test the water every few days to see when it is safe to add to your main tank

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

You don't want any ammonia or nitrites in that water. Youre basically cycling again. It could take a week or more to get to the readings you want which is 0 across the board except for nitrates, you can have those.
