Anger management classes? (lol). JK Charles. I have no idea. Usually it's the tang being the aggressor. Wish I could get my tang to be nicer.
i once heard that if a fish is aggressive you pull him out and put him in a different tank for a week or two, rearrange a couple of your rocks then put him back in. what that does is, make him feel like he's in a different home, he would be more afraid, because he doesn't remember it like it used to be.

i might be wrong, if so let me know i would like to know the answer also.
She's doing what clowns do. Clowns are damsels, and once they find a territory they will defend it against anything - even something much larger. People post all the time about clowns attacking their hands when they work in the tank...mine gets my arm all the time.
