Is this fish aggressive? How it will be with other tang?

In a word, yes - potentially one of the most aggressive in the hobby - pussy-cats do exist so you can't tar them all with the same brush, but I don't fancy your odds of finding a peaceful specimen, at least not in the long-term.

Do you mean an acathurus lineatus? I know it by the names clown or pyjama tang so thought I'd check.

If so make sure it's the last tang to go in as they can be really aggressive. Sometimes you get a peaceful one but they'll nearly always be top dog! Should get on fine with the tangs you've got once its put them in their place.

These are large tangs though so make sure you've got the swimming space

Yes I was talking about clown tang. Well after reading the treat and all the answers will take it of my list for now as I don't want to get Armageddon in my tank thanks for the advice.
