The meanest fish I have ever had the displeasure of owning. | by Julia M

The meanest fish I have ever had the displeasure of owning.

I've been trying to sell this little guy for a while, but no hits yet. I've had him isolated for probably a month, and I took down the divider to see how he'd do...and he's still the same. Constantly searching out and attacking the other fish. It's ridiculous.

nice fish. the one i had was nasty as well. it killed my blue regal
Sorry to hear that Dan. I put this guy in the tank with the big boys after watching him terrorize the other juvies. I came back this afternoon and he's gone. It's a shame, he was going to be very pretty
Most vics are nasty. they are one of the best looking, but i have about given up on them.
The bigger and older they get, the worse the nastiness gets! Got rid of mine, had 6 in a 55, and was a constant battle.
I have no problems with my male, but the largest female has always had attitude, but my other fish always put her in her place, before any damage is done
Interesting. They are beautiful, but I don't think I'll be getting one again
I have 3 Vic's and they kind of mess with each other but they don't seem to bother with any of the others. Sorry to hear you got a nasty one!
I have kept a few of these over the years and none were aggressive at all.
