2 tangs are too much IMO. I would have gotten 1 or the other but not both. Just my opinion.

And even though I understand where you are coming from I personally think he will be OK. Most tangs I would say the same thing but if there was 2 that could make it in a 90 gallon tank I believe those two would make it. I`m not saying your wrong intimatecple, just saying from my experience they will do fine. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

You`ll need to go the extra mile though and provide optimal water conditions by doing weekly PWC`s and feeding plenty of dried seaweed since they are herbivores. Liveaquaria says a yellow eyed kole tang needs a 70 gallon minimum which I can see because mine(which I have had 7 yrs now) is not a big swimmer like most tangs. The yellow tang I`ve seen anywhere between 50-100 gallons at most sites. Another thing that will help is that both these tangs are a different color and body shape which means hopefully no or little aggression. Good luck
