Powder Blue & Blue hippo

Would it be smart to add a Powder Blue and a Blue Hippo together? We ordered them last time, and they came covered in ick. But am now thinking if it is a good idea to get them again, for I know that they are great fish. Thanks

Tank specs:

40g

1 Yellow Tang
1 angle (Coral Beauty)
1 Sabea Clown
1 Royal Gramma
1 Corris Wrasse

I think you're nearly or already fully stocked. Put thoa two in that 40 and theyt'll break out again - even if they get mailed healthy this time.

Tank too small for one of them (Tangs). Not 3. Please.

Naso/Yellow Tang & Blue Hippo

I was wondering if it is possible to add a Naso, and a Blue Hippo. I already have a Yellow Tang and he has been doing great. I was wondering if they would be aggressive to each other.

Thanks

Per your previous post:
http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...po-101417.html
your tank is too small for what you already have.

In short, NO! The tank is too small for a tang.

Yes they will be aggresive to each other in a 40 gallon tank. Each one needs a tank of 75 gallons or larger. Look at the responses on your other post.
