No you wouldnt be! Do it and put him in timeout! That should help IMO. did you turn out the lights, feed, rearrange scape..ect?

Is it constant fighting or just when they get in eachothers way? My tangs bicker some times one tip jsardina gave me is an algae clip per tang . It did help a little.

Probably just territorial issues and they will settle it. But if it is excessive, definitely separate. If not, wait it out and see.

I sure hope you're good with only 2 weeks in the QT.

Let me put it this way- yellow tangs would be happy if the worst name I had for them was jerk. They are bullies. Try adding another veggie clip if they fight when u come by the tank. If they were just added- they will fight for about 3 days til they claim their caves and other areas. Is it sporadic or is the yellow seeking out the naso?

Checked this morning. Still flashing, but naso doesn't seem stressed. Put two veggie clips in there. They were swimming together, but the yellow started bumping the naso. Both ate fine, no issues there. I changed the aqua scape. Just a pissing contest right now.

This may sound funny. But you can get what I call a time out bubble. Its a gerbil ball. A big plastic clear ball. With lots of holes. But that in the with the fish in it. It works they settle down when they get out. Don't know why but they do.

Do you take it out and let him take a stroll around the house too? Lol.

That is a great idea though! Do they make gerbil balls big enough? I guess they probably do.
