My Tang Helped to Kill His First Victim
Well seeing as I had an aptasia problem, I went to the store and bought a beautiful copperband butterfly. As soon as he hit the water, my yellow hawaiian tang was all over him and would not stop fighting. So I fed him, turned off the lights and re-arranged some of the rock work. This did not do the trick. Plagued with stress and intimidation, the copperband kicked the bucket in less than a week.
My question is this, what fish can I add that will surve some sort of purpose in my tank and not get overly intimidated and be able to hold its own with my tang?
My other fish include a blue damsel, a royal gamma basslet, dragon goby, and a pajama cardinal. I also have a scarlet cleaner shrimp, coral banded shrimp, pistol shrimp, sally lightfoot crab, and some snails etc.
The tank is a 55g with live rock and corals.
