yellow tang attack

I just put in a Key Hole Angel. As soon as my yellow tang saw it....he went into battle mode. Me moved as fast as I have ever seem him chasing my new angel, trying to cut him. I have removed my tang from the tank, he (the tang) is now in the sump / refugium. I know my tank is on the lower limit for a tang.

Any advice as to what I should do. I am thinking of just getting rid of the tang, but I really like him.

Try rearranging your tank around. Sometimes that will help.

The 50 gallon is the absolute min. for the tang, not your 20 gallon, but yes rearranging the tank decore, and also introducing a fish when its dark will help.

The tang has gone back to the LFS.
