Well first off how big of a tank can you afford or have space for? Secondly curious as to why you want very agressive fish?

I have a bunch of tanks already and theres only a few fish that are aggresive. I just think that it would be cool to throw sum food in there
and watch them devour it.

I used to have pirhanas they were cool but they were'nt very aggresive. The Only time that they are aggresive is when they are really really hungry.

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.

I used to keep a type of fish sold as a "needle fish". Aggressive doesn't even begin to describe the carnage they would inflict on another fish in the tank. If it was small enough to fit in their mouths they'd eat it (in fact they required feeder fish as they would utter shun all other types of food) and if the fish was too big to be eaten you could be sure it wouldnt have fins within an hour of entering the tank. Putting your hand in the tank was a good way to get a nasty bite. You may want to look into those although they require a long tank to avoid running into the glass when they charge their intended target.

With the size of the tank there isnt much your going to find to suit your thurst for aggression.

exodon paradoxus are a decent option if you get a nice big school of them.

If you get a larger tank i have a lot more options for you.
