tangs like a larger tank 75 or bigger i belive the powder blue needs even bigger so three tangs that already need a 75 gal tank or bigger and tangs normally dont get along together as it is i would say no.....

The powder blue tang is a very active swimmer and need at least a 125 gallon aquarium.

I have a blue and yellow tang together, They get along fine. If you had a big enough tank, As said above, I think you'd be right. 125gal+

NO. That`s a recipe for a disaster. At least a 125 is needed. 6 Foot tank needed.

Baby fish sometimes seem to get along, but as they mature they will kill each other off or get stressed and develope ich and all three will die.
