Multiple tangs

I know that Tangs of the same family normally fight, but I heard if the tank is big enough and they are all added at the same time it may work. What do you think the minimum size tank for a scopes yellow and salfin tang is? Thanks!

At least a 6 foot 125g will do In my opinion. I also heard it helps if they dont look like each other, so I got a yellow and a blue.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I am a beginner in salt water, but I have a blue tang and yellow tang in my 55 gal. and they don't bother each other. They were both added at the same time, and from what I understand that makes a big difference.

Ok, thanks. Did you put your scopes and yellow in at the same time?
