Tangs

I know that tangs from the same genus normally don't get along, but would tangs like the scopas, yellow, and purple get along if all added at the same time? Thanks

Probably not in anything under an 8 foot tank,,and even then i would bet the purple ends up running the other 2 out..My purple is a big ol bruiser ,,and they are thought to be one of the more aggressive tangs..Its possible and may work,,but for how long is the real question.. I would say pick one and go with it
