You may have a few initial territory issues but in the long run I think it'll be fine. Esp in a 150g tank. Is that a 6ft tank or 5ft?

I was thinking of putting a divider in the main tank when I add the PB then they can see each other close up but not actually stress each other out. Not sure how to do a divider yet tho lol.

Dividers are a pain in the ***, I used to have one in my old freshwater tank for a short time. Lol you're better off just putting them together and letting em battle it out if they even do that. Like I said, mine stopped fighting after the first night, now they're fine.

I know you just did, but if you re arrange the rock, it helps when adding tangs. They will still chase around for a bit but it will help. Also feed before and have plenty of algae to cruise by and nibble

Yea think I just have to bite the bullet and go for it lol. I hate adding new fish always leaves me very nervous encase it upsets the balance I'm sure you know what I mean lol.

Yea I was thinking of feeding little but often if they fight. Fish will always choose food before a fight lol. I have the rock where I want it now so don't want to move it around anymore.
