You will be lucky if they last two years let alone one...eventually, tides will turn against you. Some rules aren't meant to be broken

I would not even recommend the 2 you have in your tank now. a 3rd I think they'll get to stress out just like the other said. IMO Tangs should be kepted in 100 Gallons or more They need a lot of swimming an open water to move around. I mean you can or might get away with one but depending on your Livestock. Just look at it like this You ever been into a Crowded mall before? It's a lot of stress trying to get threw too where your trying to go.... JMO

You say that you have two already for a month. When fish are put in crampped quarters things dont happen right away. But after a while all of a sudden then you`ll see your fish start to develope health problems. It`s not we dont want you to have so many tangs, we just dont want to see a post by you later on titled "Why are my fish dying". Dont think for a second that just because you`ve made it a month that you`ll make it forever. The laws and rules of SW aquaria move slowly but they move surely.

Only if you plan to upgrade to say a 180 gallon in the near future.
