Technically, they just need light and the water column. You can supplement with coral food if you wish.

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

I keep mine at 80..but some ppl keep it a little lower. I think about 74 or 72 is about as low as you should go, not positive on that though. I'm sure someone will chime in and correct me.

You're fine. You'll find that you may need to search around a little to find a LFS that is giving you good advice and or not just trying to sell you things you don't need. I got lucky with mine, it was the first one I tried but others haven't been so fortunate.

As long as you do PWC (partial water changes) you should be good with this. Do not dose the tank with calcium, iodine, or anything really if you don't test for it first to make sure you actually need it.
