    I have a 450+- liter aquarium I have a decent sized sail fin tang and I now wish to add a powder brown surgeon is this a bad idea? Will they get along fine?

    Should be fine if you can get them through the first 24 hours.
    Maybe use an aclimitisation box to introduce the PB.
    Just watch out, the latter is a white spot magnet.

    I say that you can house max 3 tangs in that tank, the 2 you propose will be fine together. The sailfin will get quite large. You dont mention how big the sailfin is and how big the new introduction will be.

    You need to watch agression when introducing tangs to tanks, provide loads of hiding places, introduce at night and leave the lights off for a few hours. If you can have an eggcrate separator in for a few days this will help with terratory disputes.
