Two tangs and a 130 gal...HELP

Okay... Maybe a problem maybe just seeing who's boss but I had a 2 may 2.5 inch scopas tang and today added a yellow tang about the same size and the scopas tang is chasing him all over the tank. Will this stop or will it be an ongoing thing? Thanks in advance guys and girls!

They are in the same family (Zebrasoma.sp) and have the same body shape which usually isn't a good thing. Yellow tangs can get pretty mean, but the fighting should end once the yellow establishes it's dominance.

As long as you have enough caves and places to hide & sleep you should be fine. Like it was said before, once they establish the "king" things will calm down. However, if there is only 1 or 2 good caves things can get nasty
