I believe that its because you've introduced other fish to the panther's home and it doesn't really like that. as I said before I believe if you can rip the panther out and setup a mini aquarium for a couple of days with him in there then pop him back into your DP again..... that way the panther would now be the new fish which may stop the fighting.

Ive done this with a yellow tang before. introduced a vampire tang and the yellow practically destroyed it. I ripped the yellow out of the dp and left him alone for a few days in a mini tank... put him back in and no more fighting

I still think it will end up choosing a new spot and will likely cause the same issues.

As I am sure you know with all of your experience with them, they grow fast and add a tremendous amount to your bioload.

Good luck and keep us updated.
