New Fish - Need Help

I just bought a Blue Sided Fairy Wrasse and is getting chased and nipped at by my Dwarf Pygmy. I also saw my Engineer Goby nip at him. I have all of the lights out and fed them. My other fish are 2 Pyjama Cardinals and an Ocellaris Clown. Everyone was getting along and it was a peaceful tank. The rock is pretty well stacked and the corals are doing good on them. Is this normal for the new fish to get chased? Any suggestions? Thanks.

You could try rearranging the tank to reestablish territories. What size tank?

It's a 75 gal with about 80-90 lbs of live rock.

Every time I would add a fish someone would chase the newbie. Hopefully tomorrow will be different.

I've had the same experience. My yellow tang likes to bully all new additions to my tank. Including his own reflection at times when I clean the sides. It usually calms down after a day or two though. I hope it calms down for you. =)
