Then no. Very few tangs belong in a 70g with most needing at least 75g and up.

Animals grow, your tank does not. Eventually they will stress from not having enough space to maneuver, being crowded by other over-sized tangs, and eventual spinal deformities, disease, and lesions will appear on top of trying to keep your water chemistry in good form.

Didn't we already go over this? Your tank is too small for 2 tangs.
