It wasn't for the good of the ship. The ship would have been fine with either decision. Janeway was even siding with Tuvix, until a tearful Kes begged to have her Neelix back who she loved more than any other...

Both Janeway & Chakotay commented on how Tuvix was actually more than the sum of his parts.

It was Kes's plea that influenced Janeway. And that's simply bullshit for a Starfleet captain.
I think it was a bold decision. The sort of really hard decisions captains, y'know, have to make because the buck stops with them. It wasn't an easy decision and I don't think she would ever be happy with having to make it but Tuvok was one of her oldest friends, so the upside of a hard decision is that two beloved crew members were returned.
They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.
