Small Yellow Tang and Small Regal

How would a small yellow tang and a small regal tang in a 48" long tank work together for a period of 6 months or so?

Probably not well, but might. Why 6 months?

b/c i have a small regal in my tank in right now, and I was thinking of adding a small yellow for a half year or so to eat my green hair algae...i would then trade in the yellow.

Well there are animals that would do a better job than the Tang and you could avoid the probable conflict.
A Lawnmower Blenny would do a great job.

I would hate to get rid of a fish myself after caring for it so long... go with another algae eater if you can.

A Lawnmower Blenny is great for this. Lots of personality too.

Some will consume other types of food, but be sure you see him eat at the LFS before bringing him home, this is very important. Some have been known to starve because they refused to eat in captivity. I have one and he eats anything I put in the tank.
If you have no or little algae, you can substitute seaweed sheets (nori) on a clip for him and they are definately reef safe.
What type if goby do you have in mind?
