Convict Tang is a member of the surgeonfishes and is one of the most peaceful of the available tangs. They can be fairly hardy once acclimated but will not do well in a tank that has not completed the aquarium nitrogen cycle.
They should primarily eat marine algae and having lots of live rock in your tank will provide plenty of grazing opportunities in between meals. Try to give them a varied diet and supplement their diet with marine seaweed using a veggie clip.
They are somewhat disease resistant but you still need to take proper pre-cautions and use a quarantine tank before introducing them into your main tank. Keep them in the hospital tank for two weeks or so and watch for obvious saltwater diseases, like marine ich and make sure they are eating.
