I have yellow, blue and powder brown get along well in my 150 gal. Have you thought of a blue powder?

If you do go with the Black Tang, I would make sure the size difference is large between him and the yellow with the black being larger. Yellows can be feisty but Blacks can hold their own when they are larger. I've had blacks from the size of a U.S quarter coin to the size of small plate and they have very different attitudes at those different sizes. If necessary, you might need to isolate the yellow until the black gets settled and familiar with the new tank setup. ( can you tell I am really into black Tangs? lol)
Having said all that, a nice medium sized naso or unicorn might make for a less aggressive environment upon introduction. A Kole ( yelloweye) will be a good algae scraper for ya as well and still looks nice as an adult (opposed to say a Chevron (IMO) ) with a Tomini adding a little extra color than a Kole.

But if the bottom line question is which fish will be the least aggressive towards the EXISTING fish, I'd go with Naso or Unicorn. They are far less aggressive than circular shaped Tangs. ( and Blacks can be aggressive!!!!)

Hope this helps

My last Tang

I can't even introduce my 2 year old clown tang to my main tank with all the other tangs because he is way too aggressive. Eats like a pig (I got lucky) but swims like a mad man constantly in my 6' long frag tank. Spectacular colors, he is just too angry.

I have gotten rid of all my tangs except for the blue hippo, and I now have a Foxface.
What's a good fit now for a few tangs?

Naso is a good pick.

Here is what I want.
Black tang
Blonde Naso
Chevron tang
These will work together if I am not mistaken correct?

That's certainly big enough for some tangs, but not all of them.
