I allow chasing, liplocking, and tail slapping in my tank. As long as no one is being injured, hiding all the time , and not eating it's allowed in my tank. This could be a double edged sword because depending on fish selection and tankmates it could escalate very quickly into something much much worse. These fish can be big and mean and that's why selecting tankmates is so important.

There must be a reason your asking so what are you seeing? If your keeping Rainbow's I dont normally see them overly aggressive.

Just a little nipping from a severum who is making some scales go lose on the head of the fish. I just wanted to know over all I had a psycopathic fire mouth that was relentless in chasing my ranbows (cichlids) and would always flare/liplock with the male rainbow.

What size tank are they in? If the fish is being hurt then it may be time to rehome the aggressor. There are some things you could try like rearranging the tank decor or adding more caves/hideouts.
