New angelfish help!
So I have an established tank with some random tetras, a marble Angel, and an upside down cat. I Found another beautiful angel I wanted to add to my tank. Hes a Wild peruvian Altum and is about the same size as my existing angel. Well I acclimated the new guy and introduced him to my tank and the existing angel has been chasing the new one around the tank and nipping at the new ones sides. I rearranged the tank somewhat (40 gallon) and turned the light off. It has only been about an hour but I was wondering if the existing angel will kill the new one? Will the territorial dispute calm down and everyone will get along? If so how long? Is there anything I can do to help the situation? Thanks for any advice you can give!

Please read the fish profiles. Angels need to be in a group and one reason is to spread out the aggression. Unless they happen to develop into a mated pair, you'll continue to have one stressed angelfish in that tank as long as it's chased by the "owner" of the tank...
That, and I think a group of Angels in a 40 might be pushing it.

Agree with what's been said. Remove one of them, or the new one will likely soon be dead.
Once an angelfish or group of angelfish is in a tank, other angels should never be added. The existing fish consider the tank their space.
