They share the same colors and body shape, right? I'm pretty sure they won't get along. How long did you let them go at it for before you took them out?

Somebody needs to go back Years ago I had a yellow tang and decided to add a yellow butterfly... big mistake...needless to say, butterfly died within 2-3 weeks.

I have a yellow tang and a foxface in my 90gal together. I added the tang after the foxface though. They are best buds they spend all their time together. I have had no problems what so ever.

I separated them the next day. tried to put them back together today as long as the foxface stays at one end of tank they seem to be ok but when the foxface goes to other end they go at it again. got them separated again. seems to be territory problem.

If you really want to keep them both take apart the rock structure and completely rebuild it. They will both be confused and disoriented and hopefully figure out how to live together.

Good luck!

changing the rock work everytime before introducing another fish usually works.
