so i transfered my 75g reef into my new 150g last week. my lfs had ordered me 1 naso tang, 1 blue(regal tang) and 1 zoster(yellow pyramid) butterfly. everything with the tangs seems great even the scopas i already had is getting along with both the other tangs, but the regal is putting the hurtin on the other fish in the tank including the butterfly(which has been the model citizen as advertised.) so my ? is should i try and trade him in for another or just take him back..... my tank has no room for a bad@$$

I don't think that's too unusual for a BT. Sometimes they just don't like the new guy.
How long has this been going on? You have to monitor the situation yourself, but it may just be a thing that lasts a day or two while the BT seeks to establish itself at the top of the tank's hierarchy.
If not, you may want to see who would like to take your BT.
