will this work?

Hey all, today I went to the LFS to get a Pajama Cardinal, got him, but mom desided to get a scooter blenny at the last second..and anyways, I put them in the tank (after accumulation) and my damsel went straight for my cardinal, so my question is, should I take him out and put him in a QT tank and wait a few day's...or take him back to the LFS, and wait to get another blue tail till the last fish ( I want one but I dont want him hurting my other fish)..? Thanks in advance (my pjama was bit in the tail and he looks..not happy, also, is their anything special the blenny/pajama need to be fed?)

If it's this one, they are aggressive:

Your cardinal is peaceful. I don't believe they will get along very well.
aggressive and peaceful don't work well together......You might be able to get away with peaceful and semi-aggressive, but with a big tank and with caution.

LOL! I searched all over for a blue tailed one! He is semi aggressive. You might be able to put him in your QT for a few days, and see if he won't attack. That is a great idea. These are the steps I tank when adding new fish:
1. Drip Acclimate (of course)
2. Feed the main (even just a little, helps to make them calm)
3. Turn off the lights
4. Sometimes rearrange the LR
5. Add the new guy (light are still off for a few hours)
6. Watch closely

ok...Thanks....the only bad thing is... I dont have a QT (yet) that is big enough to house him, well at least, were he will be happy... my only extra tank is a tiny 1gall..... but I do plan to add new fish in the future..like..at least 2 clowns and a clown goby or two, and maybe a 6 line wrass or something.... all peacefull,...but then the stinking yellow tailed is semi aggressive *mad* why do the pretty fish have to be mean *really mad* LOL

Just be glad you didn't get a blue damsel, he killed my royal gramma (of course, I didn't ask here first and the poor guy suffered!) There are other damsels that are even meaner!
