Probably just figuring out who is the new boss. How big is your tank and what other fish? Maroons are usually aggressive, so I think the Tomini is gonna get a lesson in bullying.

May just be being territorial best thing to do if it persists is tank the tang out for short while if you have somewhere to keep him or rearrange the rocks

when i added my midas after having a clownfish dominate alone for a few months, they def had a few nip battles. It subsided in a few weeks, but one eventually died...but during the time i did research and it was something along the lines of establishing dominance

Thank you that's the reason I got him because all the other gold stripes I've seen we're faded orange like a light yellow with a light gold stripe this one is very dark with both colors and loved his colors
