    I'll agree with the two for the tank, I have a blue hippo and a sailfin that get along fine, they have a completely different body shape which I think helps.

    I as well have a hippo and sailfin tang and no problems with my guys. The sailfin was added a little over a year after my hippo was.

    that was my bad civicc i was the one that suggested those two "blue" tangs, he said he was going to stick with two (phili and kole) and that will hopefully be the case.....

    Correct me if I am wrong, but you have a young mimic lemon peel tang, yes? That fish alone requires a very large, say 120 tank. That is alot different then your standard yellow tang, you may be able to get away with something smaller like a 90 or 120.

    With that said, I would just add a kole OR blue hippo (not both) if it where my tank.

    Purple tangs are agressive, it killed a kole in my friends tank. Plannin to add 2 only.. mandarins here sold are all wild caught so i dont prefer as its a task to train them to eat frozen.
