60 Gallon tank is way to small for these fish even if they were housed in a species only tank. They are very active (especially the males). My male is easily as active as my Sohal and Purple tangs.
I have kept harems of these fish on a couple of different ocassions and I didn't have any issues with them bothering other fish or vice versa but the males do have a tendancy to be very rough on the females and a 60g tank will not afford the female any room to find shelter.
Make sure that the fish is not swimming iregularly when you buy it because they are notorious for have swim bladder damage and typically will not recover if they have this problem.

Here is a pic of the male I have now and as you can see I have him in with a few other Angels and Tangs and he gets along with them with no issues whatsoever.
