Blue tang will not be happy in a tank that size. It will outgrow it quickly. The need lots or room. If they get cramped the become very susceptible to getting sick and coming down with ich

Sailfin will also be to large. If you go to liveaquaria.com it will give you some brief info on each fish including their recommended tank sizes.

No. A 60g tank is too small for 2 tangs, in fact it's not really big enough for 1. You might be OK with 1 of the less active ctenochaetus.sp bristletooth tangs.

With the proper lighting you surely can have corals in your tank. May I suggest as far as the tangs a yellow eyed Kole tang. I`m like Larry in that I think 2 in a 60 will be too much. They need plenty of space to swim. Here is the yellow eyed Kole tang.
