red hump being aggresive is this common????

I have a bow front tank that I've setup for geo's I have 2 jupari's 3 surneminsis I recently pickup a red hump at my local fish store and since hes entered tank hes been all over my much larger surneminsis he just chases them then backs off but the surneminsis don't seem happy color changing fins raised they are 3 times the size of red hump should I wait it see if he settles down or bring back to my lfs worried about my larger geo's being stressed and dying

I'm not familiar with that name. Any pics or scientific name?

When your fish are CLEARLY incompatible, you have no other choice but get rid of either parties before one of them gets killed in the process.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
