Once this fish gets to ten inches it should be given its own tank or eaten. This is a very aggressive fish and can handle other aggressive species such as red devils and zebras, but keep a look out for bullying when they get bigger. In Africa this is a prized fish for eating, but in the USA this is a prized aggressive pet fish.
