Will a kole tang get along with a pacific blue tang? Any experience you've had with eather?

Thanks in advance!

Tangs of different body shapes usually get along OK, its when they have the same body shape they do battle for me. I would'nt put two in a tank any smaller than 90 of so gallons though, they need room to swim and grow. Alwasy stock a tank based on the fishes adult size not how big they are today, your goal is to keep them their entire life so make sure you have the room. I have had several tangs including a hippo and sailfin live past 13 years and many past 7 years.

I have a love for tangs.
I have a 150 gallon reef with a kole tang, yellow tang, sailfin tang, blue hippo tang, and a powder blue tang.

They do on occasion get into each others way and start sword fighting with their barbs but this is only once in a full moon. 99% of the time they are great with each other. However keep in mind just because 1 person has a good experience doesn't mean it will be good for you. Always use caution when introducing new tank mates.
