I was talking about two of the same species, as long as you keep either one or three + then I don't think there would be issues. I have heard of issues with yellow tangs kept as a pair.

At least 2 tangs will be my first additions. I'm still thinking just one yellow with a blue atlantic one. I didn't know they had to be introduced together, thanks for the heads up!

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

Not always a must, but much better to do at once. That way one doesn't have an established territory to defend when the second is introduced. Those two will look nice together, nice color variation. Think what you could out in the 265 your going to buy!

The 265 is out. It's an eight foot tank. :-(

It doesn't look like an eight foot in the pictures. It looks like a 6 foot that is exceptionally tall. If it is eight foot and as tall as it look its way more than 265 gallons.

Thanks again kelsey!

Forgot to reply to this! It was only the brains that I noticed him picking at, so that would include plate corals as well. We didn't have many corals in the tank at the time so he might have picked at more if he had more selection. I was probably just very unlucky with him though, I always seem to get the coral nippers!
