WOW, now that's some salt!!

Just curious.....with my tank, I keep about 40g or RO water around to fill up the wet/dry when it goes low (I haven't invested in a sensor to automatically pump water once it's low). Do I have to keep a powerhead in that water to keep it circulating or is it ok just to leave it covered?

If you do not put salt etc in the water and cover it it can probably save without a powerhead. Just make sure you circulate it a min of 24 hours before you use it. I keep mine stirring 24/7

They'll be ok in time. When you put the purple back in (I agree with the short term separation) hang him in a specimen box for a while to let the newer fish investigate him on his terms. Once the sailfin has had a chance to establish a territory and hiding places all should be well (unless by some horrible chance of fate they've chosen the same hiding spot, lol).

Expect some chasing/dominance but if it gets really rough be prepared to remove the purple again.

You could always rearrange your rock work 8O

Well the purple tang was returned to the main just before feeding time today. He went right back to his old ways. I am going to give it until Wed. If it does not let up he is going to the LFS.

5 min is hardly enough time for the fish to used to each other and I'm sure if you left it in there it would have gotten better. My scopus pushed up on my naso for a few days when I added him and all is fine now. I would say after a few days it would be fine to add him again and you will probably see some pushing again.

Well? How are they looking today? After about 4 hours of jockeying you should have seen it level off some? I would feed extra and put it in multiple spots in the tank (just in case you don't already) so that they don't have to compete for food.

I put the purple tang in yesterday at noon. It had been it the fuge for 3 nights. The purple harassed the sailfin the remainder of the day and even when the moon lights were on. The widescreen TV is across the room and also put light in the tank. When I turned off TV things seemed a little better. When I got up this morning it was a different tank. They are swimming around together. I saw a little pushing one time and the convict tang came over and broke it up, other than that they are now getting along. The sailfin seems a little skittish though. Hopefully it will get better

Sounds like it is on its way to getting better. Good luck.
