    Currently I have six tangs in my 125G. Powder Blue, yellow, blue tang, sailfin,clown and a hipo that have share the tank for a year now. The powder blue every one in a while will go after the clown but other than that it's a relatively peaceful. Keeping them well fed will reduce the aggression as they would not be competing for food.

    I have a 150 (6') tank. I currently have a Blue Hippo, Powder Brown, Yellow, Sailfin, and 2 Spot Bristletooth. They get along fine. There were issues when a new one was added, but after a day, no issues. I love tangs and the fact they swim around so much. The thing I read before was to keep only a single one from each genus/species. Here is a list I gathered a awhile back with most tangs listed by that. I do admit that my sailfin/yellow are from the same genus?, but they do get along just fine (after a day of flashing the newer entry).

    Acanthurus coeruleus Atlantic Blue Tang
    Acanthurus japonicus Powder Brown Tang

    Acanthurus pyroferus Mimic Surgeonfish
    Acanthurus sohal2 Sohal Surgeonfish

    Ctenochaetus hawaiiensis Chevron Tang

    If you are going to put multiple tangs of the same species make sure your qt them and put them in the tank at the same time. I put a kole, yellow, and blue tang in all at the same time with no issues
