Stocking Question/Compatibility issues?

I was in getting my weekly dose of ro water and saw a beautiful Kole Yellow Eye Tang and was wondering if this would cause any problems with my yellow tang? I'm getting some questionable advice from my lfs ("sure that Naso Tang will work great in your tank!" I only have a 72 gallon tank - which I happened to mention). I also have a pair of clown fish too. I've looked up some info but haven't been able to find out much. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

I think you would be okay with the Kole and the yellow tang. Usually they fight if they have the same body type and color. I think that your tank would be a little too small for a Naso though.

You should be OK IME. I had a yellow and a kole together for 7 yrs and they were OK. As Mr swift said they only fight most of the time when they have similar Body shapes and colers. IMO you should be OK and the kole tang is a very hardy tang. Good Luck.
