I will upgrade in the near future to a 200g

Shoots no one is attacking you. We are just saying you have literally less than a few months to rehome that tang before it stresses out. I hope we're wrong but that would surprise me.

Tangs are grazers and swim long distance in the ocean. Placing one in less then 6' long tank will cause stress and poor health and eventual the tang will shut down and die. Believe me it happened to me in a 55 gal tank but I didn't post pics when that happened and neither will you. This process took 4 months for this to happen and really upset me...my tang looked great for about 3 months....I'm not here to bash you i'm just trying to help you with my experience...believe me it will happen and you wont tell no one because of the shame and embarrassment.

The cycle typically takes 4-6 weeks. Ammonia and nitrites will get high, which will burn the gils of your fish. That is just scientific fact. It might not kill them, but damage will be done. The damsels will do much better than the Tang, for a variety of reasons. Two weeks in, things are probably not bad enough that you would see anything bad happening. I would not think you are out of the woods yet...you are barely entering at this stage. The fish will be active and eat, so that is not a sign of anything.

Going to a larger tank for the Tang, will increase its chances of long-term survival, but it needs to go into a cycled tank, or that damage will just continue.

I don't recall seeing it yet, but two weeks in, what are your parameters?

He said on the 19th that his test kits are coming from England and it will be 10 days so I'm hoping he found some sooner.

I'd recommend some AmQuel at this point to save the fish from harm. It detoxifies ammonia, nitrite and other bad chemicals. Dose some AmQuel and aerate the water with an air stone.
