Just How Aggressive Are Dottybacks In Your Opinion?

What do you think? Do you think a pair or a single could get along with some "peaceful" fish in a 125g?

Which ones have you found to be the most peaceful?

I think they can be hit or miss sometimes. My purple dottyback was pretty docile. It was however a meanie until my killer kole eye tang put him into place. When I first introduced the dottyback is was chasing and nipping at the chromis and clowns in my tank. After a couple weeks it stopped doing it and settled in.

I've heard of others who never had any issues, and some who had to return it to their LFS for fear of having their other fish die.
