what would make them act differently then? why would 2 fight, but 3 live in harmony? i think it's all up to the fish. just like people, some fish are more aggressive and some are more passive.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks for the input, good to know. I was planning on three yellows anyways, but I was curious about the notion a pair would fight.

again, it's hard to say for sure. you'll just have to try and see what happens. i never liked the yellow tangs much so never kept one, except for in the gym tank. it wasn't aggressive towards anything. i have found hippo tangs to be the most peaceful of the tangs. everyone i have ever kept or seen has shown zero aggression. never kept a kole tang long enough to observe aggression, and lastly, of the tomini tangs i have seen, none appeared dominant enough to worry. all powder blue tangs i have kept/seen were mean and nasty towards any other fish in the tank. sailfins seem pretty cool. the desjardini in the gym tank showed some aggression towards the copperband butterfly, but it didn't last very long.

Hey carey, liveaquaria does have you blue tang
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Blue Caribbean Tang

This is the same fish, aquacon just has a really really nice picture of one. There scientific names are the same.

Carey- I don't know if you have ordered from aquacon.com before but I've heard they are a sham. Look them up on BBB website before you place your order. It looks like bad news to me.

Good luck if you go with them. I just know what I've read. That's why I looked at BBB to start with. Had horrible reviews is all I was going by.
