A third tang in a 100? Hmmm... That seems like an awful lot of bioload. I'd love to have a third in my 120 but don't want them to suffer from overcrowding.

One of those tangs grows to 8", another 18" and the third would grow to 12". I think adding anything else (especially another tang) to the tank is asking for trouble. You have about 60" of (adult sized) fish already in your tank without adding another fish. I'd say let the ones you have grow out. I think you'll find you have plenty of fish!

Ya I would opt for a bigger tank with that crew anyway. 180 would still be a little cramped, you have some big fish there. I would expect some aggression.
