Kole tang behavior

I have just added a yellow eyed kole tang to my tank and he looks healthy and happy, my question is I have seen him swim up to a large damsel of similar coloration and they both lean on their sides and shake. Much like my pair of clowns. Just wondering what that behavior is?

That would be more than likely be them trying to establish dominance...My clown does it to everyone in the tank...It's quite funny...

Yea makes sense. I think the tang has established himself as the big fish!
