From my research, it didn't look like I'd have any issues with a tang and a Heniochus diphreutes (black and white butterfly fish). My tang has been with us for about 6 weeks. I just added the Heni today. After about 15 minutes in the tank - my yellow tang is chasing him all around...not so much nipping at him (yet), but following him everywhere and tarting toward him every chance he gets.
Is this aggression normal for the tang at first - or do you think the Heni has too close a body shape to be kept with the yellow tang? I really didn't think this would be a problem, but maybe my particular tang is a little more territorial than normal?
Thanks all. If anyone's going back to the lfs
- I'm sad to say, its the tang
