What size tank were they in? I had problems with an aggressive fish and had to bring her to my lfs. I usually stick with species only tanks or go aggressive community tank with all my aggressive fish.

He just may have been aggressive most are others pretty calm. How big are they and when did you introduce them?

I can relate. I've had to rehome two false green terrors (gold saums) for the same reasons.

The only green terror that wasn't a problem was the true green terror, but they are difficult to get.

The terror,ebjd,firemouth&pike(aka belly crawler) were all introduced at the same time all around 3/4" to 1" in length..the ? terror ? has since out grown them all,at 4" he wants to claim the entire tank as his own territory...the firemouth is the only one to challenge him since the introduction,the pike(aka belly crawler-aka EGOR) has been his faithful minion since the beginning...

I had a ram that didn't like a cory cat I had with him but be friended another cory cat and was cool with him. So it really depends on the fish.

Did some research & found what I thought was a true green terror is actually a gold saum..explains the over aggression towards others in the tank...has since been been rehomed...

Yep, the gold saums are everywhere. I had a true green terror (andinoacara stalsberg) a few months ago, but she died of hexamita.
