    Yup!!! Give them a couple days to decide who'll be the boss of the tank. Keep an eye on them to make sure one isn't actually getting beat up. A little jossled is normal but nothing that looks like some damage can occur.

    Very normal. As Toutouche said, they'll likely work it out in a few days. If it gets too bad (any signs of actual damage) you can put in some kind of divider, egg crate works great, for a few days until they settle down.

    Yeah, except the new fish should be the one in the penalty box. You don't want to give an established fish another reason to hate the newcomer.
