Powder blue added, Auriga agrivating her.

I added a powder blue to my (and my sisters) tank friday night and the auriga in the tank has been really harrassing her. She has scratched her mutliple times with her sharp top fins. I hope that this is superficial and will heal quickly, any thoughts?

Last night, the powder blue started fighting back and now they don't fight too much, but I thought the powder blue would be VERY dominant. Perhaps she needs time to acclimate?

Here's a pic. She's very healthy and eats very well. Hopefully the dominance display by the auriga doesn't cause her to get sick.

FYI she was QT for about 5 weeks before being added to the tank thanks to a buddy.

Great looking fish. I think if things are settling down I would leave her be and keep a good eye on them... maybe she just needed show a little muscle herself to pick her place in the pecking order

It was common in my tank and almost always settles down.
