Tang harassing Shrimps

How do I stop my yellow tang from harassing my camel shrimps? I have two in my tank, after I added the yellow tang, the shrimps have been hiding behind the powerhead. I thought they would get along, or maybe the tang just wants to be cleaned ??

Yellow tangs have a tendency to be somewhat aggressive. Do you feed any nori, lettuce, spinach. Maybe ensuring the tang has something to graze on will keep his attention off the shrimp
