    Feed immediately, a little more than usual, until you see that the Wrasse is not bolting around chasing food. Full tummy should calm things down. Switch off the lights and rearrange some of your rock work.

    id put of the lights and wait it out a little.. new fish being put with settled ones always comes with a little ill temper.. if the chasing is consistent showing no sign of subsiding id look at rearanging rock work to disrupt territories that have been established.... normally a little patience (from the aquarist) in allowing the lights to be off and even covering the tank can work with basically no real disruption to the tank..

    good luck
