After watching for days and nights all different times I think I've found the tank boss. Just not sure what type it is or I it's male or female. But definitely Is keeping the peace and if something goes down it comes out of it's house to break things up. Doesn't take any nonsense.

This is it's house :

Nice looking fish! And what kind of plant is that? It's real right? Do they leave it alone?

Because of the lighting I can't really tell, but I would guess its a male red zebra.

Zebras can be bullies. My tank boss is a red zebra that remarkably grew faster than the others. Im talking over an inch difference the first month from the others.
