Blue Tang & Yellow Tang?

I have a 125 Gallon tank, and have a blue tang, and 7 chromies in there right now, I was thinking about getting a yellow tang, and was wondering if it would be ok, or if it would be considered overstocked, and will a yellow tang be ok w/ a blue tang since tangs are territorial i believe

I think you would be fine. Blue Tangs are less aggressive than many others and the yellow being introduced later would be the right way to do it. Given the size of the tank, i do not think you would be overstocked and they should be ok together.

i agree that you should be okay too....i have seen many tanks that have that tang combination, and like tripper said, your adding the yellow last which is the way to go. They have different body shapes and different colors so you shold be okay with a blue and a yellow

...would keep the more aggressive tang as the smaller size.

I have both and they get along great, when they get hungry they sometimes get aggresive but only then.
