fire fish w/ purple basslet

I have a 50gal fish w/ live rock. I bought a purple basslet yesterday, and a fire fish today. The puple basslet is "picking" on the fire fish. The fire fish has been in the tank only about 30min. Will this eventually stop?

Also, the fire fish looked good at the store. He now has a twitch. I saw others at the store which I bought this one from and one at another store that had this same twitch. No signs of bugs on any of them. I aclimated him for about 90 minutes. Is this normal for fire fish????

-50gal tank
-20gal tall sump / refugium.
-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
-emrald crab

Unfortunately, no i had bought one and it continued to pick on my six line wrasse and clownfish until it killed both of them, sparking a huge bacterial infection killing everything in the tank. I would remove the basslet because they are considered very prediatorial while fire fish are peaceful and fragile
