Just Added - Butterfly Reef ---- My Yellow Tang is

mean, he will not leave him alone -- never nips at him but chases him everywhere...

Tang is about 3 inches, Butterfly is about 1 1/2 inches

I have tried over feeding the tang and leaving sea weed in - he just will not stop...

I did not see this coming - ????

The tang does not mess with anyone else

Clown, Algae Blenny, Damselfish

They both will be alright in a day or two, after they realize that they dont have a choice except to get along.

I have a blank damsel which is very notorious. He unleashes havoc every time I add a new fish. But after a day or two things quiet down.

Any time you have a problem like that just turn the lights off for a while. That works alot of times.
