Green terror......terror!

We have a 240litre tAnk. We had 2 platys,4 mollies, 1 kissing fish, 2 bosmarni, black shark, silver shark and albino plec. We bought a green terror and a chocolate rainbow chichlid on the weekend after being reassured they would be fine with our other fish but by god they were wrong!!!!! Last few mornings we have woke up to find a bean up fish or fish with chunks of fins missing, couldn't understand what was doing it as everything was so peaceful with the lights on. So this evening we turned the light out and to our horror the mollies started panicking, swimming on their sides all curled up, next minute the green terror was out trying to eat them!!!!!!!! I was mortified!! Out on a feasting spree!! But I think the other fish are a little too big but still being pecked at!! So we immediately took the mollies platys and kissing fish out as they seemed to be the targets! So my question is, do you think the cichlid, sharks and bismarni's will be ok!!??? They seem to be mid or top swimmers as the smaller fish were bottom and easy target????????

I'd say the other fish should be big enough to survive the Green Terror

The Green Terror is WAY to aggressive to be in a tank with mollies, platy's and the like. He needs to be in a tank with other fish of his type.

We were told from a fish shop he would be fine! We have now taken the vulnerable ones out and rehomed! Cross fingers he will start behaving now!

The LFS just wants to make a sale. Trust me, I've made the same mistake

Not sure about the 2 Cichlids but either of them should be ok with the shark. Might wanna ask in the Cichlid forum I'm sure the Green Terror has its name for a reason, lol

They are very pretty fish, like most cichlids. The green Terror will probably grow to 7 inches or more as well. He'll easily be able to gobble up the smaller community fish with no problems.
