So i have a very aggressive (male i think) venustus. He chases everyone around all the time. I have a 56 gallon column tank that has 12 -14 African hap cichlids right now. He is the biggest fish in the tank, getting another tank is out of the question right now so i can't quarantine him. Is there anything i can do to ease some of its aggression? Will adding more fish help? I am open to any suggestions accept for buying another tank at the moment. (Wife says no more tanks)
Thanks in advance for any help!

Venustus get 8-10". And will eventually require a 75 gallon +. They also prefer a 36"-48" swimming length. Awesome fish, looking to get some when I get a larger tank. But if that's not in the cards, I would rehome while you can.
