Also aggresion most oftenly comes into play over territorial disputes...so providing tons of caves or none at all tends to curb aggression...aggression can also be determined by the individual fish themselves...we've all got a start somewhere in the hobby,main thing to keep in mind is research tons,ask for advice from knowledgable folks&understand that the inevitable mistake can/will happen...for example: while at petsmart yesterday I decided to test the knowledge of the person in fish...noticed mts(malaysian trumpet snails) scattered throughout numerous tank asking the salesperson what they were&got a response of nuisance snails...&that they should be taken out of any aquarium...so couldn't resist explaining that in fact they are beneficial to aquariums as they clean up uneaten food as well as deteriorating plant matter(in planted tanks of course)...in point do your own research before entering such places armed with your own knowledge of what your looking for...this isn't always the case with sales reps but if you're not careful you can be mislead very easily..

One other thing to note,mts also aerate the substrate helping to reduce anaerobic pockets in the substrate as well as helping to oxyginate roots for plants in planted tanks...
