3 Yellow Tangs in My 300?

In My 300. Do you think I could go with 3 Yellow Tangs? Would they fight or would 1 or 2 yellows be better off?

With a eight foot tank I think it is doable as long as there are places for the fish to go hide when they go into nipping mode.

I have 3 Yellow tangs for almost 4 years in a smaller 150g tank with no problems. I started them off as small and all of equal size.

you should be fine in a tank that size. Also like cthetoy said, stating them as small and equal sizes will help.
