Another Tang question

Can a Blue Powder Tang and a Brown Powder Tang coexist in the same tank? TIA

IMO yes, coexist would the right word for it though. I dont think theyll be buddies. Is the powder brown already well established in your tank? Is it aggressive towards its tankmates? I dont have any experience with the powder brown, but I do have an extremely aggressive powder blue in my tank.
I recently added a sohal tang in my tank and before I could even get it out of the bag the pbt was attacking the bag. So I put the pbt in a QT for about 2 days, rearranged my rocks and now they "coexist" they just do alot of posturing when they see each other.

I removed the Sailfin and the Yellow Tang because they were attacking the new PBT. The PBT is not aggressive to any tankmates so far. Only time will tell.

In a 75, I would say no. Stick with one or the other but not both.

Yeah. He seems to be happy w/o the other two tangs in there. Should i reintroduce the other two tangs back into the main tank later on? I 'm thinking maybe within a month or so. What do you guys think?

Were you looking to add a 4th tang to your 75? WOW. If you're going to put them back you should do it before the PBT becomes territorial. What are the other 2 in now? What will you do with them if you decide not to put them back into the 75?

I hope you are planning a bigger tank sometime soon as your fish list is very large for a 75.

Phyl:
I just wanted two tangs in the 75 gal. The other two tangs are temporarily in the QT. I'm taking them back to the lfs, and trade them in for a Purple tang or a Regal this weekend, not sure which one yet.

Ed Es:
Yeah. The traffic in my tank is pretty congestic during the day. I think its time for a bigger tank.
