Hey there. Around 6 months or so ago I bought 4 BN babies. Two came from one breader and two from another as i am keen to bread some of my own. The problem that im having is that now that they are entering their teenage years is that the two males have grown huge in comparrison to the females. the other problem is that one of the males is overly agressive towards all the other fish. I woul understand if he was a little touchy towards the other male but he is in a community tank with golden tiger barbs and he is even having a go at them.

Any suggestions? He is in a 350l community planted tank with two large peices of driftwood and lots of other rocks and caves to hide in. The other tank mates are glowlight tetras, neons, 8 corys of diffrent types, Swords, Mollies.

All my water perameters are good, I tested them the day before last.

Any one else ever had an agressive BN?

Some of the bn males are super territorial,to the point where even people keeping them with cichlids have to take them out.Dont know that you could do anything to change his personality,I would separate him from the other 3.

Individual fish can be anywhere on the territoriality/aggression scale.  Sounds like a candidate for a species tank to me.
