    On the positive side, it gives you the chance to plan for a larger tank!!! I planned my 180 for the specific reason of housing tangs. I currently have a powder brown and a yellow. I have thought about adding a Kole but I'm undecided. As with everything in our tanks, one change or addition can have a whole series of effects , bioload, aggression , specific places for each to hang out and feel safe, changes in feeding etc.....

    Certain tangs can exist as multiples. I have a 300 gallon with 2 yellow tangs and they generally hang out together. I could probably add a couple more if I did it right. The problem with tangs is they are active, fast swimming fish that are well armed with ...... tangs. Since most home aquaria are pretty small compared to reefs, aggression is very common.
