Which tangs can go together?

I have a sailfin tang in my tank and was looking to put another tang in there(120 g) i have read that certain tangs will fight with eachother. Which one is a good companion for my sailfin?

Always try to go with different body shapes and colors. If you are looking for another tang to go with your sailfin I would go with a yello eyed Kole tang. Maybe later a blue Hippo tang. Just some suggestions

The powder blue is a bit finicky. They really need a 6 ft tank.

I'm sure it could but I personally would not. Tangs really do like 6 foot + tanks.
