redtail chasing danio

My redtail shark is chasing my zebra danio a lot. Non stop. This is the first time I've seen him do this.

OPur Profile on this fish http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/p...-tailed-shark/ needs some more info, but what is there does mention this behaviour. You can expect his aggressiveness to increase as he matures. The "chasing" may seem like play, but to the zebra danio it could be extremely stressful.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

HUH thats really funny. I read that profile and it said that redtail sharks don't like striped fish. I have a royal gourami in the tank that is smaller than the danio but for the most part it leaves it alone. One my cycly is complete the danio will be coming out.
