    Yes, its normal for that behavior, as long as attacking doesn't mean "damaging"!! The fish that were in the tank are letting the new guy know who's in charge...for now. They can also sense that he is scared in the new enviroment. Almost all fish will harrass the new guy in a tank is it appears weak or too scared. Keep an eye on things and should settle down. My discus have a well established pecking order. With only 3 in your tank of course your newest one is getting all the attention. Things should settle down as they all adjust.
