    i have not seen any of the fish already mentioned but what i can share is my experience, african cichlid's will eat feeder fish when full grown, and i have seen a biker fish gobble down 4 feeder fish in about an hour, i like these fish because they can be in a tank with other fish as well not just by themselves

    Neon tetras are fierce! :eek: At least the ones I've been around. I had a group that was fine for a while, then one by one they began picking off their numbers. They would always start with picking off ones eye then finally going in for the kill. I hate those things.

    Right now my freshy tank has two African Leaf fish whom I adore, but they are so horrible to each other when they swim close by. I put a few other schools in there and they don't bother them. The only fish to mess with my two leaf fish is the algae eater

    Black Convict Cichlid, they are very aggressive. Cichlids are awesome.

    Hi people!
    I'm new here so go easy on me...
    I'm wondering if anyone here would know if a Finger fish is an aggressive fish or not. My boyfriend just got 2 of them on Saturday, 1st November. They seem to be attacking the female fish or both gendars
