Convict gone mad

Well, I'm not going to say that I wasn't warned. My lone male convict went on a killing spree last night in my tank. :'( he killed all three of my bn plecs, an upside down catfish and two swordtails. This arrangement was only supposed to be for about a week or so to give me time to find him a home. Everything was great for a month. I feed him and all of my other fish well and he had his own territory. Oh and he's only 2 1/2 inches long. Just thought I'd share how volatile convicts can be. I'm not sure if I'm gonna keep him or not. Thoughts?
