Trigger Tang Living Together

I have decided to turn my larger tank into a saltwater fish tank instead of a reef tank. I have a nice hippo tang and thought about getting a yellow tang but would they live with a harlequin tusk and clown trigger or humuhumu trigger or would they fight? Thanks.

Triggers are always questionable IMO. I've heard stories of them being model citizens for years and then going crazy and attacking/killing everything. Blue Jaw Triggers seem to be fairly mellow, so if I was going to pick one, that is what I'd go with (and actually am planning for my 240g).

I honestly think that triggerfish should be kept alone or with fish that can hold their own like eels or puffers.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.
