It really depends on the fish themselves. My yellow tang bullied my kole tang for some time, but now leaves it alone for the most part. It's best to add tangs at the same time.

What size tank are they in? Anthing less than a 6' tank and your chances are good that there will be aggression because of a lack of space.

Mine are in a 60gal 48" tank because of a rescue from some people off Craigslist list.. long story short it was i take them with some liverock or they were going to flush them. I am planing on upgrading to a 125 in October or December. I rearranged some rock hoping that would help the aggression. Do you think for the time being they will be ok?
