My advice is just try them. I learn what food is required and feed different foods different days.
Frantosa are one of my favorite too. Just over stock when they are small taking into account many will die. You can't stock after 3 years.

No I disagree completely fronties  Belong In either a species only tank in a decent size group or in a community tang set up with very similar species as they get spooked  quite easily.
Tangs need a higher ph and are less forgiving with water parameters so you need to be on the ball.
Fronties grow VERY slow so they are a long term fish to really see there beauty
