BlueHead vs PaddleFin?

I've had a SuperMale BlueHead (BH) in the aquarium. I just added a PaddleFin(PF), and the BH constantly harrasses the PF. Is this temporary? If not, I prefer the PF, but don't know how to get the BH out of the tank w/ all the LR. Is this a temporary compatiblity issue? What can I expect?

First, welcome to AA!!
In a 300 gallon I wouldn't worry too much, at least for the first week or so. They have plenty of room to get away from one another.
Its not out of the ordinary for a new fish to get harassed by the "king" of the tank.
Give it a little time and see if it works out. You may want to turn off the lights for a little while, or if the assult continues, rearrange the rockwork a bit.
Let us know how it develops, there are other measures.
