CopperBand and Tang

Wondering what you guys think about these two together? They seem to be doing ok. But every once and a while the tang with chase the copperband away. For the most part they seem to swim together.

I have a blue hippo tang and a copperband with no problems.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I have 3 tangs with a copperband, that chasing is normal behaviour, you need to worry when the tang chases it "tail first"

I agree this is normal behavior especial depending on the type (body shape) of the tang.. What size tank are they in? Tank size can add to the problem.
