Hi there, your dimensions don't add up with the 450lt volume, even with the 3 foot being at the bowed end. Either way, the tank is of good size for the tangs. If the Yellow Tang has been there for a while (like 3-4 months or so), then mostlikely you will see aggression towards the Sailfin Tang. Also note that the Sailfin Tang will not be able to be housed there for the entired life (if they do reach the size that they are supposed to, 15 inches/38.1 cm) so you might be looking to house it in a bigger tank later in the future.
