Every tang is different. You may have a nice sociable yellow tang but I may have a skitzo one that attacks everything.

IMO the best thing to ensure a peaceful tank with tangs is to provide a tank that is suitable for them (as big as possible).

Well guys I started out with a very small yellow tang and later purchased a Desjardin Sailfin tang both different colors but the same body shape. Now the sailfin was the one with the attitude and they did both fight. But calmed down after me playing referee but later down the road I had to take the sail fin out of the tank to treat him for Hole IN the Head and I just recently put him back into the main tank and then the Yellow tang started in on him but has calmed down. You just have to watch them and be ready to take one out if need be and make sure you tell them that they are grounded till they can play nice with either other... LOL

I have read on many forums they are calling it an Attitude Adjustment. They move the bully fish into the Sump/Refug until the new guy gets use to his new surroundings and then move the other back into the main tank making him or her lose his stumping grounds.

Lol that seems so mean lol I can't imagine putting him in my fuge haha I have heard of taking a Tupperware thing and putting holes in it then putting the mean one in but all I do is put my hand in the tank and give him the point with my finger and kinda just swims slowly over to his cave and pouts not kidding. Plus if he chases anything my flame angels sticks up for all the others and puts lil nikki in his place haha.
