The last couple of weeks, my auratus has been getting super aggressive with my socolofi and has been turning very dark, almost all black sometimes. I’m not sure why and i’m contemplating trying to rehome him. If anyone knows why this is happening and if there’s anything i could do i’d appreciate it!

He’s a boy, that’s what males will do when they want to be tank boss. Sometimes they will target a single individual so keep an eye out for major aggression/injury.

He’s just going after my socolofi and being majorly aggressive with him. I’m scared he might end up killing him, should i take the auratus out of my tank?

Removing the Auratus is your call. Socolofi can be pretty tough customers as well.
Auratus are one of the most aggressive Mbuna. Unfortunately they are offered for sale much too often.
