Damsel stressing my triggers ans tusk

I have a Large four stripe damsel. It is chasing and stressing my Picasso and Niger triggerfish, harlequin tuskfish and my chainlink morey eel. I have done all the " basic methods to curb aggression. " any ideas.

Yes I have tried that as well. I do not know if he needs more time to get used to them. But my Niger has actually tried to attack it several times.

a trigger fish will eat anything that can fit in its mouth it might be trying to eat the damsel

24 hours. The others have been in the tank for 2 months. It is fully cycled. Has been running for 6 months. I just dequarantined the damsel. 3 week quarantine and added. So maybe that's the problem time to get used to the new fish?

They got plenty of room to stay away from each over then. Once they've worked out who's boss hopefully it will be fine. I've got a tigger and 4 damsels n they get on fine
