Sailfin tang and Hippo tang together?

So I have a Question, I just picked up a sailfin tang the other day. He seems to be doing alright. I only have a foxface and a sixline in my 100 gal tank along with the sailfin. but my tank is only 3-4 months old as well. Did I put my sailfin in to early? I cycled my tank out with damsels and all that good stuff.. Let me know! and also I would like to throw a Blue Hippo in also if i could with my sailfin if that would be possible. and if it is can you give me like a time that tank should be up and running before i do that? Thanks!

if the tank has been setup for 3-4 months, your sailfin should be fine....

for the hippo tang though..... in the sort of sized tank with a sailfin and foxface already.... you may have a few territorial punch ons at the start.

also if you really really want to get a hippo, try to aim for a small one, they like to swim a lot..... plus with those sort of fish in that sized tank, make sure your filtration can handle that sort of bioload.
