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.

piranhas are not a good fish to have they creat alot of waste and are very timmid. get some peacock bass, maybe a gar, tigar cichlid or even add and oscar in there. there are lots of different types of agressive fish out there. arowana's are beautiful 2

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.

Not sure on agressive fish.
But i have 6 red bellied piranahs.. and let me tell you right now they are NOT agressive as their reputations have it!!!
I put my hands in there...move stuff around all the time, they are more of scaredy cats than piranahs!!
i kept 2 dozen little fish in there...some type of minnows..and they barely ate them! i had to take them out in about 2 weeks because only a few were actually ate by the piranahs.
Also when i feed them raw rock fish, or steak or anything...they will all take a bite out of it, but believe me they do NOT go crazy and agressive!!
and everytime you walk by the tank they freak out and bang their heads and all on the sides of the tank lol
also they HATE the light!! so you can not even really watch them
my brother had them...then he said a few monthes later he wanted new fish (now i know why!)
