    Hi everyone. I just got an Eibli dwarf angelfish. I acclimated him, and all went very well. He swam around and the Yellow Tang spotted him. :25: Tang is out with his tail, following the Eibli around and disrupting him. Should I wait? or rearrange the rocks? or reintroduce the the tang after some time?
    I have a 4ft 390litre tank, lots of LR.

    My yellow tang did this with my naso tang, after a week he stoped.

    Just give it a few days. Check tomorrow if he is still doing the same. Maybe he is just setting things straight to show the angel that this is HIS tank and he is not willing to give it away.

    When I introduces my locally caught new additions to my tank my hawkfish went crazy and were really agro. He let it slip after a while and now everything is back to normal in the tank-with the hawkfish still in control as he let the other fish know it's his tank, then settled down...

    Cool
