If your tank is at least 125g, then I'd say yes. Tangs will spar with each other and other fish regardless of Genus/specie.

Edit: At 60g I wouldn't add either. Both need more swimming and territorial room.

I agree that both are out of the question. Too small of a tank stunts growth and causes health issues.

I have a hippo tang (the blue one) and a yellow tang in a 72 gallon and frankly, I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of the hippo tang because he has gotten so BIG. I bought both of the fish very small and I was told by the lfs that they would be fine together. I would listen to the folks here and seriously reconsider.

How about a nemo?

That would be Zebrasoma scopas, Scopas tang and it can reach 15in. in the wild, so say about 10"-12" in aquariums...still too large, just more shy than other tangs.
