If introduced together, they may get along, otherwise you may run into some territorial disputes.

No matter how many tangs you house they will have their territorial disputes. The blue hippo's tend to be more shy and therefore less dominant, but the two are compatible...for tangs

Had my Hippo and Yellow tang together without any problems at all, in fact I think they were buddies. Unfortunately the Yellow guy just died today
