Is that a Butterfly Pyramid or did you mean a Pyramid Butterfly (Hemitaurichthys zoster)?

Zoster Butterflies can hold their own against a number of fish. I wouldn't worry about it unless the fighting gets to the point that someone gets hurt or is constant.

Hope this helps

Is he damaging the yellow tang? Like is he constantly going after it?

Those spines are SHARP too!

Yes he is, he stops for a while and then he keeps going. He has been here for a week now and it just started today.
