i have seen someone keep 2 powder blues togetherHad one years ago, beautiful fish and he was actually a model citizen, perhaps the sohal kept it in check.
I'm wondering if the aggression goes away in a group or do they go at it until one is left - same for powder blue/brown.
Ive now seen grown Biotas and good yellow but not as vibrant as Hawaiian yellows. All my tangs are wild caught and have high color - pics do no justice. I have yet three tangs to acquire yet putting me at 28 tangs and then will move on to other fish.I have some small AC fish currently but have been getting feedback from fellow local reefers that the AC Yellows don't color up as well as their wild counterparts. Hard pass on these until more data shows up on grown up BIOTA specimens.
Have you thought about Blonde Naso Tangs? Great looking fish. I have been getting all my fish from REEF BEAUTIES however all they have right now are the large. But, you can always call these suppliers and see what they can do for you buying multiples like that.
I would be very interested to know how it goes with the achilles. Of these, I think it is the most delicate and prone to get ich for no reason. I also have a gem, and am considering to get an achilles, and I am very curious how they will be getting along. I didn't dare to add other zebrasomas, but since achilles has a different body shape, I hope that they would get along together. My main concern is that the current tank is not big enough for these fishes, it is just 65G. I have built a 200G but could never find the time to get it started...I have a mixture of 7 currently and waiting on achillies as my 8th and final! My tank is 72x36. 275 gallons

I posted those pictures for you to see the pairs, quads etc! Triple purples, One has 4 hippos the other has 4 powders etc.. the over all number is irrelevant sorry for replying! Have a nice day!
You have mentioned price several times. Do you have a max budget in mind? Is it a firm budget? Thus far I haven't seen a single reply that was budget-conscious. Sounds like a half-dozen captive-bred yellows is the leading suggestion (with cost and color still possible issues).
Do you have a specific tang you prefer?
