Fish switcheroo who 2 move?

So I have had quite a week. lol and now this.....

I am thinking of swapping some fish around amongst my 2 or maybe 3 tanks. Lemme see if I can share my thoughts.

Issue #1- I have a new 29g biocube with a scooter dragonet. I know he can't survive for long on the pods in there since its a new tank. I gave him a bag of pods today and am trying to grow more.

Issue #2- I have 2 oscellaris and 2 b&w's in my 55g. Since the orange ones have started hosting my elegance coral the female has been harassing everyone in the tank. especially the male b&w. My royal gramma hasn't been out for days, the blenny is even in hiding.

Solutions or swaps:
1: move the 2 oscellaris into the cube and/or put the scooter into the 55g.
2: move the b&w's into the cube with the scooter
3: wait for it all to settle down and do nothing yet

Concerns are that the oscellaris will harass the scooter in the cube. also worried that the b&w's won't do as well in the cube, they were pricey and my first sw fish.

Any ideas based on my LONG story? or any angles I didn't think of. I have tried to return or rehome the scooter all day and no one will take him. i am hesitant to rehome the bossy oscellaris, what happens to her mate? Or would I have to rehome them both?

As a side note, I intend to get a 125g up and running later this year.

I thank you all who have read thru this!!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Well I took another option. I moved the pair of oscellaris over to an empty 29g. No rock just sand. :-( I figure I'll move the coral out that they have been hosting and maybe the females attitude will change when I put them back in.
