aggressive s.g.t attacking turtle and others

Recommended Posts

Hey just wondering what would be the best way to stop this guy being such a bully, he smashes my turtle which is massive in comparison to him, fights with female green terror and the native perch I've got, also he tries to go the heater and the magnetic glass cleaner, is he just in breeding mode? He's just a c-arch to be polite, if he keeps it up I'll be getting rid of him ASAP.

P.s is the sex that moves gravel around male? Lol otherwise I have one hell of a grumpy female in there

Thanks mike

Both male and female SGT move gravel around but more so the female will build a burrow. Do you have a photo of him/her?

To curb the aggression you could add either a bigger tank mate or smaller tank mates (in the form of dither fish) but I would not recommend another SGT of either sex.

I have always found that a decent sized JD can play the role of rodeo clown quite well as they tend to be able to take the harassment with retaliating too much.
