3 blue green chromis and yellow tang

Would I be able to keep a yellow tang and 3 blue green chromis in a 56 gallon aquarium? I have heard about tangs being aggressive to other tangs but I didn't know if I could keep them with other species peacefully.

Nope yellow tangs need a 75g min, but preferably at least a 125 to be comfortable

36 gallon fresh water

10g saltwater

Most tangs need a 6ft long tank to have enough swimming room to remain healthy.
The exception to that rule is those of the bristletooth, kole, and tomini tangs. They can do well in a tank of the 75 gallon range.
