Can I add a 4.5 inch yellow tang to a foxface one spot?

I am wondering if they'd get along in a 125, the yellow tang would get along with the rest (they are a 4" blue hippo, 4" sailfin tang, 3" picasso triggerfish, a pair of clowns, and the one spot ff) should i get an acclimation box? A mirror? Ive read some people kept them together in like 75s or 90s

A one spot and a yt can be ok together... But you've got a lot of potentially territorial fish already and the yt might not behave... Hopefully the yt will be the last fish you add.

Every fish is different, but I’d be more worried about adding it with the sailfin than the foxface. Foxfaces often don’t get bullied too much because of their venomous spines. I added a one spot with my purple tang and when the purple starts to show any aggression the foxface turns his spines towards the tang and the tang backs off.
