another last resort option.... don't know if this will work or not... its pretty brutal.

I had a niga trigger and it consistently kept brutally attacking my lipstick tang... I even put my hand in the water to woosh it away and the trigger just went around my hand and kept attacking the tang.... so I just netted the trigger and took him out the water and held him out for a solid 20 secs or so them put him back in....

he never bothered the tang again.... lol

When I add any new fish I start by feeding the fish in the DT. Turn off the lights and add the new fish with the lights out. In the morning the ambient light in the room gives the new fish time to find it's way around the new tank. And the resident Moore time to adjust to the new fish. With FW fish you can change the landscape to lower aggression. SW fish you'll need to pull one of the fish for two weeks as them have longer memory's.

alco 1 is using "net the bully" routine. This works only when you can net the bully.

My Tangs are always challenging my foxface and each other but with no or minor damage.

Good luck!

Finally ,theres peace in the tank.The Foxface swims in front of the tank and the Yellow Tang takes the back.I chased the Tang around the tank with my long tongs everytime he started chasing the Foxface for about 30 minutes. When he starts chasing the foxface he sees me with the tongs and backs off.He chuckled and looked at the pic of the Tang I taped to the tank,and kept chasing the Foxface.So the fish centerfold didnt work.He even started coming,at the tongs at first wanting to do battle with it.The Foxface isnt looking that stressed out anymore which makes me a happy camper.Thanks for all the great advice!! Feliz Navidad
