Blue Hippo tang compatibility...

In my 72 reef i have several fish to include a blue hippo tang. I recently added some new fish, all of which were rejected by the current inhabitants. One of the new fish was a small pygmy angel that the hippo especially did not like. He hunted the pygmy through open water and live rock crevices to the point of exhaustion. Has anyone else heard of/had a compatibility issue with a hippo tang and a pygmy angel??? Will a tank rearrange even help???

On the same note I had added 3 anthias that were tormented similarly (mostly by my 6 line wrasse)

PS don't worry all the new fish were quickly removed and acclimated to my other tank.

Most tangs are a little on the agressive side. Most people will add them last to the tank. Here is a good compatibility chart.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
