would the 5 yellow tangs be aggressive to it? I've always heard that all tangs should be added at once

They can be real hard on the "new" tang. Size seems to matter, the big one is the boss usually. But I would agree that they all need to go in together.

I have read and been told that it shouldn't be agressive as long as the tangs are different in color and shape.. which the pacific blue tang (that's what it is, right?) and yellow tang are.

That's what I'm hoping... cause the tang that's coming tomorrow needs to be happy... If I have to I'll do lights out.

The shape seems to matter more than the color. Anything "tang shaped" is met with some tail slapping by my brood of Tangs.

That really sucks that you didn't get it. I would love to see some pics of one up close in a home aquarium.

Man, that was the tang I saw the other day too. Very beautiful fish. Why does it take so long to get the fish? Is it the capturing part?
