Fire Goby Aggression

I have a 30 Gallon SW setup with juvenline clown, Blue Tang, Royal Gramma, Cleaner Shrimp. I recently added a fire goby which I thought was a peaceful addition. This may be the case except for the odd quarrel with my beloved Blue Tang. Has anyone seen this type of aggression before? Should i evict this meanie or will it (and my hippotang) eventually get used to each other and their surroundings?

I believe you may have one to many fish in your tank. Your tang should not be kept in your 30 Gallon tank. I recommend 100 gallons or more for a Tang especially for a Hippo tang they require alot of open swimming space.
