Yes you can what you will to stay away from if they are in the same species. If they look a like they maybe aggressive. for instance a blue hippo and a yellow tang will get along more that a yellow tang and a purple tang. Y the purple and yellow are almost the same besides color but the hippo yellow have different shapes. The blue hippo is more elongated while the yellow is more round

I have my mandarin trained to eat frozen and pellets (this takes time and patients) , but I also raise pods , mysiss , brine so he has a endless food source
I have had my mandarin almost a year now and he has got to be one of my favorite fish

ok so it boils down to get one that looks as different as possible to the yellow tang? awsome to hear that. Something else is my tang refuses to eat algea. its on a clip around his area he likes to be in the tank. he loves flake, and brine shrimp. should i get a food that has alge and protien formula?. sorry just have loads of questions and i refuse to depend on google searches. Ive been missled in the past more than once.

I suggest getting the other tang as you do the transfer when no territories are established. If you don't want to risk it there are A LOT of choices. Anthias are beautiful. So are wrasse. Also have you tried nori for the tang? Romaine lettuce? Less nutritional but can help him convert
