Kole Tang w/ Yellow & Hippo?

Hey All.

I want a kole tang to go with my hippo and YT. I have a 125 g.

Is that a good idea?

I think it`s very doable. Those tangs are different color and body shapes. IME three tangs in a 125 will work. The only problem I see is be careful of the hippo. They do have the rep of being an ich magnet.

To clarify, I've had the hippo and yellow for over 6 months at this point, so I know they're established. I'm pretty good at acclimation - after i'm done dripping, I turn off lights overnight. Gives them a great chance to get comfortable and then in the AM, the old fish seem to not notice as much.
