Blue Chromium picking on tang

I have had my blue chromis for a year now. I added a couple Tangs to my tank a 120 gallon. I ended up getting ick and lost 1 tang a snider goby. My snider goby was aggressive, and since he is gone the chromis have gotten aggressive. Ick has calmed down, im waiting 8 weeks to get another Fish. What should I do with the chromis? .

How bigs the chromis relative to the tangs? As long as no damage is being done and the tangs are still eating it should be fine. The tangs should become more bossy as they grow.

The tang is about the size of the chromis. Makes sense. Thank you.

Yeah I'd give it a couple months and the tangs should be a fair bit bigger by then. Now if it gets really bad and the tangs stop eating/damage is being done I'd look into re-homing the chromis
