    im thinking your tank may not be fully cycled, is your test kit up to date? what test kit is it?

    I think your moving too fast bro. I wouldnt add that amount of fish after 9 months, let alone 9 weeks. The water quality isnt where it should be. how many water changes have you done in the life of the tank.

    Do you feed the resident fish and turn out the lights before starting acclimation? Do you closely observe the new fish after adding to the tank?

    I would leave the lights out for the rest of the day after adding a new fish to your tank.

    Adding another fish like a Picasso to your current stocking in a 46 gallon tank is not a good idea in the first place. That would be a very small tank for four very aggressive fish.

    My vote is on aggression.
