I was just watching tank and noticed that my y tang went from fish to fish picking on every fish.He's picking on a trigger ,tomato clown and damsels.My big volition ties to bite his head off andthe y tang tries cutting his face up and swims circles around him non stop. I love that mean yellow fish. My yellow tang is one mean SOB. 690297

Sounds kind of fun to watch but I would also keep a close eye on your other fish for signs of stress from his behavior..... Can someone move this post to where it goes in the SW section? :)

i have a yellow tang in a 55 along with two yellowtail damsels... no aggression issues at all. everyone is well fed. they all have spots to hide in the live rock. have a great clean up crew and 2 corals growing. water changes of 20ish gallons every 2 weeks.

that's what I do anyway and they stay fine. i feed spiriluna flakes, brine shrimp, and shrimp pellets.

i hope it helped somehow.

YT's are notorious for being aggressive. It could be because of tank size, over population, not enough food etc. Do you leave Nori for the tang to graze on?

remember every fish in your tank wants to be the only fish. these fish come from all over the world and most don't live together in nature so over stocking a 125 gallon tank or a tank thats too small all contribute to an unhappy fish in your case its the Tang. people go and buy these fish when there 2 inches and stick them in 55 gallon tank and expect them to be happy for the long term only to find as the Tang grows he also gets more aggressive these fish can reach 8 inches.
people really need to start doing their reseach.

my yellow tang use to beat up my lion fish, he broke off almost all his tentacles. I was almost certain he would end up getting stung and end up floating but the lion was terrified of it, unfortunately my salt water tank sprung a small leek and i ended up giving all my fish away to an old coworkers son who worked at a local pet shop.
