I didn't have too much luck with adding a blue tang into a tank with a yellow tang and a Kole tang. they pciked on the new fish. he eventually died of unknown reasons. I don't think the bullying helped his stress level. i would aim for all 3 at once.

Or if you can go tomorrow asap and get one maybe? just keep the lights out til then I think would help.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If adding one later did have to happen, he's gotta be larger than the current inhabitants IME. I added a yellow (slightly larger) with a purple and a bristletooth. One or two days of fighting with the purple (since they are of the same family), and the three of'm hung out all the time as BFFs.

Be aware that the yellow and the sailfin are in the same family, and if there is any agression, it'll be between those two. Gets some algae and clips for them. Also, try soaking your food in Garlic Guard or a reasonable facsimile to keep their immune systems up while they adjust to the stress of a new tank and each other.

Best of luck! Great looking fish.
