regal tang and yellow tang?

i am in the process of setting up my tank, and am thinking up my stocking levels, the tank will be aroung 100g.

i am thinking of having the clean up crew of 24 red legs and 12 super (Trochus) and 6 turbo snails, all from STM.

i am then thinking of adding 2 common clowns. then after a while, a coral beauty and flame angle at the same time, and then again after some time hopefully a regal tang and yellow tang?

does this all sound okay?

i know the other two beings tang might fight, but i was thinking of that adding them at the same time that they wont be terretorial to start with, and with them being such different colours and sizes, i was hoping it would be okay.

what do you guys think?

I think one will get picked on. So will your other fish too. Then again, you haven't overstocked the tank, so you might get away with it.

I would think that the two angels would fight more than the two tangs. The tangs aren't quite the same body shape, so they would probobly be ok, especially in a large tank, but the angels may bicker.

These 2 together might be a problem, as their coloration is similar.

I don't see a problem with the 2 Tangs - but I'd definitely suggest a 6' tank (125g). We have a Yellow Tang, a Purple Tang, and a Regal Tang in our 180g, and they get along fine. The Yellow & Purple have been together over 4 years.

either way would be ok, but i'd stay away from 2 tangs. Put in the angel first and try not to have a tang and angelfish that are similar colors.
