I have a south african red devil and it is the meanist sucker I have ever had. anything you put in there will be gone. I might have to get rid of it for its agressivness. really having one fish is not the type that I would like. So red devils are for sure true to their name.

i have had my red devil in with a 4.5 inch black rhom, 4 5 inch spilos and a 7 inch dovii. my red devil was about 8 inches. the fish lived in a 270 gallon tank for years. one day i came back from vacation and the only fish i had left were the red devil and rhom. 2 weeks later the devil and rhom got into a heavy fight and the devil killed the rhom before i could separate the 2. these are very aggressive fish and should be kept in a HUGE tank.

I have a 4-5 inches long one and it is a beautiful orange, and has kind of an orangish white fade to the bottom. I still cant tell what sex it is. it is super agressive towards my other fish and it is in a seperate tank! He loves frozen krill cubes. i have him/her in a 55 allon tank by himself and he is still getting use to it. They are MAJOR diggers... well mine is. I dont really have any advice except feed them three times a day.
