Will adding 2 small blue tangs to my 300 gallon be Ok? I'd hate to have them fight
As long as you add them at the same time and have enough hiding spots and food for both, you shouldn’t have a problem!
I actually added the first one last week. He's about an inch and a half. Fish store got more in that are about 2 inches. Want to add one more
There's always a risk. Strongly suggest an acclimation box. You can monitor the behavior of the existing fish. If there's no aggression after a few days, then release. Rearranging your rock work before releasing will help; removes the home field advantage. Always feed nori at the end of the tank, one on each end, so they aren't competing for food. Keep in the back of your mind that years down the line a feud could erupt.
I have three in my 300 but I added them at the same time. They squabble occasionally but nothing major.
