Of course once your little purple gets about the same size they are going to go at it again ..... Its just tangs being tangs.
Theres a bunch of tiny hiding areas. Im more worked with what happens when im not watching (bedtime, work, out of the house)... If im not there to break up a serious battle, the purple will die. Also i dont know how much this purple can take

30g water change is done!! Unfortunately after installing the float valve, i realized it shuts off flow to the collection bin, but doesnt shut down the input flow (theres a built in auto shutoff valve) so i need to call brs tm. Im gonna keep an eye open for a 50-60g stand up water container. Fish are doing good. Going to clean the dt light splashguard when i get home. Also gonna take the auto shutoff valve apart and see if its sticking

Alright. For better or worse i decided that the only way to solve this issue with the tangs is to toss the yellow in and let them sort it out. Ironically enough the purple went on the attack. Because of the size difference the yellow fought back. As far as i can tell now, they have settled down for the time being. Lights have been out for awhile. Hopefully when lights come on tm they both have settled the issue

Well lucky for me, i dont need to get out the snack crackers. Woke up this morning and both the yellow and purple are alive!! I havent noticed any signs of aggression as of now and they have repeatedly come within inches of eachother with no issues.. Heres to hoping it stays this way
