Also make sure the damsel isn't bullying her at night. Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it's not happening. Hippo tangs are the most skittish fish on the planet.

My yellow tang is straight out of the gates of hell. I have had him in his one box for weeks in my main tank. the last time i let him out he goes about 90 miles an hour and chases everything in the tank. They can become very territorial if you do not have many fish or if its the first fish in the tank. Im not sure what I'm going to do with mine :/ He terrorizes my blue face angel who is all ready a very shy fish i barely see.

LOL where are you guys getting your yellow tangs from? the Hulk?? if you think yellows are bad, check out the purples. my purple went in AFTER our yellow, purple killed him overnight... bought another yellow (noticeably bigger) and the purple still pushed him into a submissive state. just keep the yellow well fed and give him plenty of swimming room...he will mellow out.
