Royal Gramma

Hey guys

This was my list of fish in the order i put them in a 77 gallon

Yellow tail Damsel
2 occ. clown
Goldhead goby
Cardinal fish
Few shrimps

Last addition has been a royal gramma about 4-5 days ago and he hasnt stop since day 1 to chase my damsel around and charge him... I know its supose to be the opposite usually ? Arent the damsel the aggro fish usually ? My yellow tail damsel is not he's prob the shyiest fish in the tank and the most scared even the clowns are more boss then him. So do you think it will eventually stop between the gramma and my damsel or will it just get worst and worst with time ? I though gramma were peaceful fish

Thanks in advance for answers

Grammas get aggressive and territorial, especially towards their own kind and other basslets. Perhaps it is thrown by the yellow tail on the damsel?

you could try changing the rock work around so that it seems like a whole new environment.
