They will periodically spar throughout the day just about every day. I would venture to say most tangs behave this way towards each other regardless of body size or shape and most of the time it is indeed a defensive behavior.

Well yellow tang went back to being a jerk. So i took him back, and got a 4 inch powder blue , and 7 blond naso tang. My tank is now finished and so far everyone seems happy and eating.

Yellow tangs do come with an attitude. Sounds like everything is good to go now.

I had same problem with my Sailfin Tang, always tryed to fight with new fish. I just added a puffer fish this week an of course the Tang had to show off and try to pick at the new fish. I put him in qt when adding others no, then return him with lights out. I would love to add another Tang but don't wont to take the chance to lose it. Are all tangs like this?

IMO the yellow eyed Kole tang is not very aggressive. At least as not as much as the tangs you have mentioned.
