I have a Yellow Candy Hogfish & a Matador Wrasse, they have been from the start together now over a month. With all the fish in my tank they are the two I'm worried about. The Hog chasses the wrasse and even at times hits him with his nose. The wrasse is faster and hides quickly but he stays that way now a days. I just finished with the rock work and don't plan on tearing things up. These fish are about the same size and got along well for the first three weeks. I'm wondering if this will go away or should I trap one somehow and bring him back to the LFS? They both are very healthy and super fast! Any sugestions?

Sounds like the hog is getting territorial now that he's used to the tank. I'd trap him and trade him in. Some lfs loan out fish traps - it can take a little while for the fish to go in the trap but it should work if you're patient and only feed in the trap.

Good luck.
