Too Many Tangs?

I just added a Kole Tang to my 75g today. My Blue Hippo and Yellow Tang who are for the most part inseparable are not happy w/ sharing their home w/ the new guy. Should I be concerned?

Yes you are in trouble. The yellow tang and hippo tang should not be in a 75 gallon tank, an it is too small for 3 tangs

How would like it if a new roommate was forced on you. When adding a new fish, turn off any lights. That way the new fish has time in the twilight to find the lay of the land.

I agree, people all make mistakes. I can only imagine how many mistakes i would have made without this site! I would probably have a tang in my 30 without this app.

The blue hippo NEEDS a 6 foot tank, and the yellow tang definitely should have a 6 foot tank. You could keep the kole in a 75, MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE a yellow, probably not, but DEFINITELY not a blue tang. I just wont work. If your looking into upgrading to a 125 or higher than youll be just fine !
