    What would you say is the most aggro or biggest killer of its tankmates you have had ?
    I added a 4cm jaguar cilchid to my oscars GT and tex setup ,wow as small as he is he is taking them all on. even the oscars a who can swollow him in 1 bite are hiding in the cnr. ????

    Got some Brichardis and Figure 8 Puffers all in their own species tanks. Have never mixed them with any other fish as they are VERY aggressive

    I had green spotted Puffers. They ate everything and anything bigger than them they will eat their fins until they can`t swim then eat them.And if other fish eat the puffers , they die as they are poisonous =O

    Hectic little fish but very cool and smart ones 2

    (Neo)Lamprologus Buscheri "Gombi"


    some say its not agressive - I think their experience is based on having a large number kept together in a tank without territory "markers".

    Agree with you there Dolphin....We have a tank with 3 teenagers, and together thy have killed 4 rivals, and that is in a 100lt tank (species only), so space is really not a problem for them, but teritory is, especially if you have "markers", that being ornaments, caves, plants, etc.
    In another tank, with 14 Danios, 2 Plecos (small), 1 Red tail shark & 1 CAE, we have 5 Brichardis... And they leave the Danios alone (guess it's because they are top feeding/swimming), and will only "react" to the other fishies that stray into thier teritory, even though the other ones are larger than them.
    They also only chase the other species,,,,, but nip their own.
    Don't know if they come in different sub-species, but we bought ours as "Princess of Burundi"s"

    Kennyi, especially the males.

    The gar on the other hand scares the living crap out of me, never mind being agressive

    Very real that Gar. Very dangerous to your fingers if kept in a tank. I know someone who has one. So do you actually.

    Not all Piranha are aggressive some you can keep shoals of in a tank ,, others you have to keep on there own as they cant tolerate anything else in there tank, not even snails or pleco's :)

    The Alligator Gar is an escape artist and VERY invasive.
