    I was wandering i already have a powder brown tang that i have got recently for my new tank. I heard that its bad to introduce other tangs after one has been in the tank for a while. I have been wanting a blue hippo tang i was just wandering if that will cause problems introducing that one in.

    Which tang will be bigger? I don't think there would be a problem, but it would help if the new addition is a little bigger (to fight back). You should also re-scape the rock work some so the PB Tang will lose his current territory because it will think that its in a new tank. In most cases, there will be some tail slapping, maybe some fin nipping for a few days then all will be well. I say go for it. I have 5 tangs in my tank (all purchased months apart) & I have no aggression issues FOR NOW. I'm about to buy a 220 in a few months so that this harmony will continue. GOOD LUCK!!
