YELLOW TANGS !!!!!!!!

I've read on a few sites that yellow tangs should either be kept individually or in groups of 6+, do you think i could keep two so long as a bought them together
TIA

I wouldn't put one, let alone more than one.
Tangs like room to swim and a 32 gal is, in my opinion, too small for the little guy.

Unfortunately a yellow tang is not recommended for a tank so small. With a tank that small one would not be happy and two would get very agressive not only to each other, but probably also to tankmates. www.liveaquaria.com has tank size recommendations for fish (50g recommended for a YT). It would be good to go through there and see if the fish you want can fit in your tank. Keep in mind that conservative estimates would give you 6" of adult fish inches and a more liberal approach would get you up to maybe 10" if they were all small fish.
