tiger barb help

I have a tiger barb, and he's all alone and being very aggressive to all my other fish, many have died already. How do i control him/her? The tank is 10 gallons. current tank mates are 1 hatchet fish, 1 molly, and then the tiger barb. There used to be 3 glowlite tetras, 5 threadfin rainbows, 2 otocats, 2 hatchet fish, 1 molly, and 1 tiger barb. Please help.

hi
to be honest you won't be able to do anything with him.
he will carry on doing this behaviour.The only way would
be to contain him on his own,and that being said he'll
more than likley die.
Tigers need a large tank,heavily planted,and the larger the group the better,12 + i would say,and even then you don't always
get a quiet tank,luck of the draw with these fish.
sorry my post can't be one of upliftment,however being
that it's tiger barbs,you play a tight game with them.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
