Really? I thought tangs were peaceful or semi aggerssive? I am hoping an atlantic blue tang and a yellow tang get along. Even the yellow is pegged as being semi aggressive to other tangs.

You need to post your potential stock list in your thread so we can see!

How many fish do you think I can keep in this 125g? I only have 5 fish coming over from the 55g and they are kinda small.

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

I have the stick with the tongs already, LOL, I use it to flip over snails and pick up frags my hermits drop. I can't even reach my arm into the tank without a step stool. I'm only 5 foot 2 and 3/4.

Most tangs are not aggressive towards other fish, but many of them are aggressive toward other tangs. You have to remember that in the wild they compete for the same food source. I watched a pretty interesting documentary yesterday that showed the powder blue tangs fending off a school of convict tangs from their reef.

I'm just looking to mix yellows with the blues LOL. I'm still not sure if I want more than one yellow one, I hear when they mature they dont hang out together and can become aggressive towards each other. I've heard this from several sources. I would love a school of tangs ( like 3).

If your going multiple with yellow tangs make it atleast three. Two will fight from what I have heard.

I've heard a lot of success storys with two tangs, as long as their shape and body color are different they should be fine. Especially if they are introduced at the same time. Our achilles tang was added wayyy after the yellow tang and they don't bother each otherat all, we have also added a clown tang that got along with the yellow tang but ended up not making it .

(I'm not too sure about adding multiple yellow tangs, though they do swim together in schools very happily at the LFS, I bet it would be fine if you got them young)
