I have 2 in my Tanganyikan tank and both (unfortunately) are males, one is extremeley agressive and the other has been chased into one spot. The dominant male is very agressive towards EVERYTHING! They are a gorgeous fish and are great for a cichlid tank. Beware! My dominant male chased the other into a point where it is showing barely any color at all and doesn't leave its one spot in a rock except to eat, they should NOT be housed with any peaceful fish smaller than themselves.
