Opposite tank? Mad Krib, what am I doing wrong!?
I swear I have never had this many problems with stocking a community tank before! It seems all of the fish that are labeled "peaceful" that I've gotten, turn out to be pretty territorial, and sometimes just flat out vicious! That's right, now my Krib, who I was told by sites, resources and books to be "peaceful", has become aggressive to everything that goes around 3/4 of the way to the bottom! He had only been moderately territorial up until tonight, only protecting a small portion of the bottom, but now he protects all of it, to the point where he has started shredding one of my young female Bettas tails! The only fish he doesn't dare mess with is my Angel (he'd be out immediately if he did). Not even exaggerating, this is the 3rd fish species I've gotten that is labeled as "peaceful" that turns out to be very mean. I know that there's obviously something wrong here because he also chases my Oto! Not even my crazy Pearl Gourami did that (tankman12 know what I'm talking about). If he doesn't settle down in a day or 2, or injures my fish badly, or challenges my Angel, he will be tested in the 10 gallon then returned. I'm tired of all the going out on a limb fish buying, from now on I'm only getting fish I've had experience with/kept, and that are not mindless killers!
