I'm worried about aggression if I do an all male tank. Do you think that will work?

You'll have less aggression if it's an all male tank, only one in the bunch I'd be worried about are demasoni, always a chance of bullying if you're making it a breeder tank with females about.

I guess I will do an all male tank. Should I do away with the demasoni's to lower aggression

If u do all male don't get two of the same males one will kill the other or harass it. Demasoni are all bark In my experience they will bully less aggressive fish or there own kind.
