I added a new fish today (japanese swallow angel) and Colonol Mustard (foxface) was not happy. He chased her all over the tank for about 5 minutes before I got tired of it and turned off the lights to try and break up the fight.

I have sinced turned the lights back on and everything seems ok but the angel won't come out of hiding. She doesn't seem to be particularly stressed (I can see her between the rocks) but she won't swim in the water column.. any tips on what I can do?
