That's usually a sign of incompatible tank mates. If you let us know what you have in the tank, maybe we can help so you stop having issues

You have multiple red devils in a tank? Those are pretty territorial.

How many do you have and how large is the tank?

You can't keep Red Devils in a 30g tank. You certainly can't keep 11 of them.

You could probably keep a pair of them in a 6ft tank depending on their temperament.

It is possible that something you did during treatment triggered the aggression but it was bound to happen anyway.

Red Devils grow to be over a foot long and are probably one of the top 10 most aggressive aquarium fish.

How big are they now?
