Not another stocking list. LOL Just kidding. The only problem I see is that you might have aggression issues with three yellow tangs. Tangs fight if other tangs have similar body shapes and colors. Why not have three different tangs with dissimilar shapes and colors. Here is mine in a 125 not too different than yours.

I also say go with 3-different type species of tangs as well. If you must add all 3-yellow tangs then add them all at the same time.

ACHILLES! They are a beautiful tang. Or a Powder Blue or a Purple.

I agree with you that the Achilles are beautiful, however, they are very hard to keep alive and need tanks with tons of flow and a large skimmer to provide highly oxygenated water. Powder Blues are nice, but they can be aggressive so it would have to be the last fish added. I would vote no on the Purple Tang becaue it is also a Zebramosa just like the Yellow and they would not get along well.
