This is going to be long, sorry, but I hope not to hard to understand.

I have a 10g. tank with some juvies in it that I'm hoping will be females (3 auratus, 1 red zebra, 1 albino socolofi). I'll get some more as I find them but that's all that was availible. I need females of these to go with males in my 55g. tank (I'll be getting a 75g. soon).

I also have a tiny 1.5g. tank that had 4 maingano fry in it. Two more maingano spit in the 55g. tank recently. I decided last night to put the 4 fry from the 1.5g. into the 10g. and then try to get the new fry from the 55g. to put in the 1.5g.

As soon as I put the 4 maingano fry in the 10g. the juvie albino socolofi started chasing them around. It also started chasing the auratus that are the same size. It was like he/she went wild.

So I pulled the albino socolofi out and put it in the 55g. tank. The 55g. is pretty crowded and the other fish weren't really mean to him but everywhere he went there was fish like "nope you can't be here, this is my spot" so he finally ended up under this short green fake plant stuff that is for fry cover. I can see him well because this stuff is up against the end of the tank. He's probably in there eating the new fry lol because I don't see many but they may have gone to the black rock pile next to the fake plant stuff.

Anyway he went in this plant yesterday evening and is still there today. Do you think he/she has learn a lesson and will be ok if I put him back in the 10g. while I'm trying to catch the new fry to put in the 1.5g. or should I just leave him/her be?

Thanks Joe, I figured as much. Think I'll just leave it where it is until the 75g. gets up and going and I'm switching fish around then.
