Add them in with the lights off or at night, that way less fish will be inclined to eat them up right away.

There really is no way to stop fish from eating them if they want to, unless you have them in a refugium or something which can protect them a bit.

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

Yeah, a refugium for them to grow and breed in is the best way to go. They won't last long in the DT.
