It's the purple color they share. They really key into coloration and general body shapes. Two skinny purple fish will fight if different species, in my opinion, and will probably fight if the same species. My yellow tailed blue damsels only get along because there are many places to run and hide and there are so many of them. Other blue fish need to be ready to rumble.

Not bad...nitrite needs to be zero. But it looks like it won't kill anything.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
