I would do a quickie water change before you go. Those trates can come down a bit.

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

Do one now if you can but it wont harm it if you do it when you come back,just tell the family to feed once every two days.

Yeah having family members feed them can be recipe for disaster. If you feed them before you go and when u get back they'll be fine
