Indeed it is, and does. Please read the profile, click on Banded Leporinus. It needs a huge tank, has specific requirements, and gets large.

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]

looks like it gets too big for a normal tank.this is kept with large predatory fishes and they do bully once they get big
