the amount of fish that are on that list and the size of the tank..... I would say theres going to be problems.

tangs can be quite aggressive/territorial... especially the yellow tang and even more so the purple tang.

they need quite a bit of room to be comfortable and swim around.

if it is a MUST for you, try to get just one..... I would choose either one or the other definitely not both, and the yellow tang would be the better options between them both, purple can be more aggressive and normally need a bit more swimming space. if its a must.... try to get one really really small and try to put one in last after the rest of your stock

I disagree with the purple tang being more aggressive. I have kept quite a few of them and never saw any aggression out of them. Yellow tangs however, have exhibited a lot of aggressive behavior.
Go with the purple.

Purple tangs are nice. They used to be $170 and up. Now I see them everywhere in my area for $90 small size and $120 medium size.

I think that is what i am doing. I have had a yellow, and it was agressive. I am obsessed with the purple tang, i even have a poster of one in my fish room.
They are becoming cheaper, but i still need to save up before buying it. Does anyone have experience with these tangs? I have heard they are easy to keep...
