Hello all
One of my Acei has got really big... he is now around 4.5" compared to his 2 other mate who stayed around 3"..... He is getting a bit boisterous and attacking one of the others... any advice or is this just nature per se!?
Thanks
Dan
p.s. you can just make out one of the others behind him.

They can grow to 6-7". The dominant fish usually will chase the subdominant fish in the aquarium whether it is "normal" or not, depends on the damage inflicted, if any.

I have had a group (6-7) of yellow tail that were all bought at the same time and all the same size. One of the males grew really fast and when he got to about 5 inches he became a tyrant, only towards his own however. He killed off three before I traded him in. Beautiful fish though.
I have 3 left from that group and they get along great. Breed like crazy.
