May be even 3 to spread aggression and remove focus from one another.

Red Sea salifin is one of my favorite zebrasoma tangs. Personally 2 yellows may end up fighting one another, I would do a trio.

I agree odd numbers for aggressive fish is more favored.

The only issue with getting three yellows is that there will be FIVE tangs in the tank, probably one tang too many. I currently have the blue and tomini tangs. Not that i am against getting five in there, lol, I love tangs, but worried about the space.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would give it a try, just do as you normally would when adding them. There won't be an territorial aggression and yellow tangs typically aren't that aggressive unless you have the one I do! He's a jerk. Anyway, good luck!

I get what you are saying. Fish can be tricky...and I only have three in a 60 gallon. Lol. After losing a lot of them and $$$ I stopped buying fish to focus more on corals.
If I were you and my heart were set on having two yellow tangs I would put them together and see what happens. You could always take one out for store credit if you have to. Good luck!

I have 2 yellow tangs in my 90 gallon that were together for a couple years before I picked up the setup a little over a year ago. They had been fine for all that time but in the last few days, one has been trying to kill the other one relentlessly. I have had to keep the lights off for the last 2 days to keep them at bay until I pick up a trap tonight. I don't know why the sudden change as nothing has really changed in the tank otherwise. In a 180 it might not be an issue, but I just wanted to let you know my experience with 2 yellows.
