Tangs need to be added at the same time to avoid aggression. After some time they could get along or they could fight till one dies.

they should calm down as long as the are not of the same body shape, but each fish is different and should be watched.

After 8 years of peace, my yellow tangs declared war on each other. Go figure. A mirror placed in the right spot can redirect aggression sometimes.
