With that many tangs, you'll likely have some aggression issues, especially from the powder blue. The powder blue and powder brown may never get along being so close in body shape. I also tend to think that many tangs are a pretty high bioload. I can't be specific as to what order you'd want to add, just that you want to add from least aggressive to most aggresive.

Powder blue tangs CAN be kept with powder brown, but like rutrag said, you're probabyl going to have agression issues. I know the powder blue seems to always be the agressive tang in most of my friends tanks(20+ tanks) so I'd say that should be your last one imo
