    Alright guys

    Just bought myself a coral beauty Angelfish and my yellow tang is quite aggressive towards it. Will he calm down or do I need to separate them?

    Tangs normally scrap with each other.
    Try placing a mirror on the side of the tank to see if it helps to stop them fighting. Feed heavy so they dont fight over food.

    Also keep an eye on their condition to make sure they dont get too badly beaten up.

    It normally settles down over a few days but as I said, keep a watch on them for injuries

    Mine didn't blink an eye lid when I introduced my beauty.

    The only trouble makes I have are 6 blue damsels that hate each other and anything that moves but they all get along in their own way.
